Triangulation Anthology: Seven-Day Weekend – Call for Submissions
The annual Triangulation anthology will accept submissions for its 20th collection (2023) in the series, Triangulation: Seven-Day Weekend.
The Theme is – Triangulation: Habitats. Sustainable habitats, in tune with their surroundings. “Show us places we want to live that never existed or that we don’t know ever existed. Past, present, and future domiciles for humans, aliens, and fantasy creatures.” No minimum word requirement for prose or poetry.
Automation simplifies our lives, to the point where a production facility is so automated it makes no sense wasting energy to run lights. These “dark factories” are currently present in the auto industry, the electronics industry, and even the robotics industry itself. What does the world look like when jobs are automated to the point that the labor force is non-existent? Triangulation is looking for outstanding fantasy, science fiction, weird fiction, and speculative horror—from both new and established writers.

How they Choose
- The organizers of triangulation aim to read submissions as they are received. If a story doesn’t align with what they want, they reject it. If they think the story has great potential but isn’t quite there yet, they would request a rewrite. The ones they love the most, they hold on to for further consideration. Next, the stories fight it out amongst themselves until the final lineup. At which time, final acceptances are sent out. When a story is accepted, the changes suggested will typically be minor and/or cosmetic.
