The Tomato Anthology

Now Open for Submissions!
We want your tomatoes.
Well, not literally. We want your tomato stories. Yes, you read that right. Stories about tomatoes. And poetry. And recipes. And artwork.
Ink Monkey and Amoeba Ink are joining together to create an anthology dedicated to the fruit/vegetable. And we need you.
Tomatoes MUST play a large part in your piece. No, it doesn’t have to be an ode to your love (or hate) of the tomato, but you have to include them somehow in your story. If we can’t find the tomato reference, we won’t take your story, no matter how good it is.
Stories must be under 7500 words. If you have a piece that is longer, query first. Any genre will be considered. Remember the tomato.
We will also accept poetry of any length, original recipes, and artwork. The artwork must be reproducible in black and white. We have a cover artist, so don’t even ask.
Stories must be PG-13 or milder. We will consider some language and slight violence, so long as it is important to the story.
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Fried Green Tomatoes, Veggie Tales, and Ratatouille have been done before. Be original.
Payment and release:
We plan to release this anthology at the Tomato Arts Festival in East Nashville, TN, in summer of 2015. A Kickstarter campaign will launch before that.
Story authors will be paid as follows: Under 3k - $10, over 3k - $20. Miscellaneous pieces (artwork, recipes, poetry of at least a page) - $5. Haiku - $1 each.
In the event of a successful Kickstarter campaign, we will increase these payment amounts.
Contributors will also be able to purchase contributor copies at a discount.
OPEN SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE FEBRUARY 1, 2015, via the submittable form.
No exceptions to the deadline.
The anthology officially releases August 7, 2015.
