Artwork is always needed — particularly pieces suited to the themes listed below, but we would also be happy to look at more general submissions. Please contact editor DS Davidson with any queries or for more details.
Please put 'Submission' in the email subject line. Multiple submissions are acceptable but not simultaneous submissions. We will consider reprints that have appeared in print publications but not electronic publications.
Work accepted for Tigershark ezine must not be published elsewhere between the closing date for submissions (approximately one month before publication date) and three months following the issue's publication. After that period you may freely submit your work elsewhere. Any previous publications must be disclosed when submitting. Please remember that if previously unpublished work is published in Tigershark, you may be unable to enter it in competitions and it will be classed as a reprint when submitting elsewhere.
Probably about 2/3 of each issue of Tigershark will be themed, but up to 1/3 will be open to unthemed work. See below for more details of themes and submission dates. Responses to each issue's submissions will be sent out after its closing date.
