Accepting Applications for Authors

Foil & Phaser is now accepting applications for science fiction and fantasy authors.

Please check out both the Site Guidelines and the Terms of Use before applying. If you have any questions or concerns about those two documents, please post a comment below. Depending on the response I will be approving about six new contributors within the next day or so, and then add more as we see how it goes. Submit early to secure your place in the queue.

Authors would be responsible for regular blog posts and coordinating workshops. Those wishing to become a registered author for the site must submit a request by email to foilandphaser@gmail.com using the following guidelines:

The subject line should read “Author Request”

and in the body of your email, or in an attachment, please include the following [All of the following information may be published on a profile page about you except for your real name and age]:

  • Your real name: [This will not be published.]
  • Your age: [This will not be published. You must be at least 13 years old.]
  • Your pen name: [The name you wish to be referred to publicly. If you use your real name, put that here.]
  • Your country of residence: [or if you wish, city, state, province as well. We do not need your exact address.]
  • Your WordPress username or an email address: [Required to set up your account.]
  • Your biography: [Between one and two hundred words about you and your experience.]
  • Your webliography: [Links to you Goodreads profile, books you have written, a personal website, blog, or social media accounts.]
  • Writing Sample: [A sample post which may be a piece of short fiction for public consumption, an essay related to writing, a review or interview, or a workshop idea.]
  • A profile picture or avatar [JPG or PNG preferred.]

Any attachments must be in plain text or RTF formats. Preference will be given to those who are members of the Sword & Laser group on Goodreads and are active on the forums there, have contributed fiction to this site, have experience in writing or related fields, and have demonstrated a level of commitment and leadership skills. All other factors being equal, priority will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
