UNTHOLOGY showcases the work of new or established writers and can include short stories of any length, reportage, essays or novel extracts from anywhere in the world. UNTHOLOGY allows space for stories of different styles and subjects to rub up against each other. It features the classic slice-of-life well told just as much as the experimental, the shocking and strange.


Unthology 9 will be published in July 2016.


Unthology is published twice a year. We accept submissions that fit the criteria above all year round, though we do ask writers to send in only one story every six months. Potential contributors are asked to have a look at earlier UNTHOLOGIES before submitting (all are available at a very reasonable price for Kindle).


Please email submissions to unthology@unthankbooks.com, with covering note and personal contact details.
