Submitting a picture of yourself is not compulsory.

Do I have to submit a biography?

Yes, we request you send us an author biography that is around 2-3 sentences. This is not required if you are submitting anonymously.

How long do I have to wait for a response to my submission?

Do you pay contributors?

We do not make any money from The Selkie; the site and digital anthology are run entirely by volunteers. Therefore, we cannot pay contributors.
