All zines: Please submit stories on disk or via e-mail. I can convert most IBM PC word processing programs such as Ami Pro, WordPerfect, Word, etc. If you have any doubts about the program you are using, please send a text (ASCII) copy of the story as well as a formatted one.
Artwork: I accept hand drawn art as well as manips. I can half-tone color and pencil work and I do print some artwork in full color as finances allow. Please feel free to submit samples of your work. Let me know if you'd like to just send generic stuff or would rather illustrate specific stories. I can accept your submission via email or I have a contributors list where you can upload the art files or we can come to other arrangements. I do need good, large resolution files.
Please do not submit your submission to another zine once you have sent it to Ashton Press without first writing to me and telling me you are withdrawing your submission. I do not accept stories which have been released to the internet, either via a fiction list, mailing list, or web page. Once your work has been printed by Ashton Press, please do not release it to the internet for at least a year from the actual publication date of the fanzine it appears in.
You must submit 3 pieces of artwork or a cover or approximately 2500 words of text in order to receive a free contributor's copy. If you submit less, you will receive a zine at approximately 50% off. (I round up in the case of half dollars.)
Please follow these rules when typing your story: Try to avoid the overuse of epithets such as "the thief," "the computer tech," "the old man," etc. I'm not telling you not to use them, just don't OVERuse them. I do edit stories that are submitted and anthology zines follow a press style. Check out my Press Style Sheet at http://members.aol.com/ashton7/style.htm
PLEASE NOTE: If I accept your submission, you have given me not only the right to print the material, but the right to use your name (or chosen pseudonym) in promoting the zine. This includes, but is not limited to, listing the material and your name on a printed flyer, website or electronic ad; describing the material and your name on a printed flyer, website or electronic ad, and/or printing excerpts from the material and your name on a printed flyer, website or electronic ad. Printing rights automatically include the right to use the material in advertising of any form but I am mentioning this so that there will be no misunderstandings. If you are uncomfortable having your name appear in advertising promoting the zine, then please either do not submit material or use a pseudonym.
I'm currently accepting submissions for the following zines: Redemption, Off the Record and Pretense. I might possibly do another issue of Destinations, if there is enough interest, as well as further Highlander zines.
