What Can Writers Do for Awards Season? (And Best of the Year Anthologies)
tldr; Make an awards eligibility post on your website/blog. Post a thread of your publications this year on social media. Don’t forget to pay the cat pictures tax. 😉
You can call it an awards eligibility post, or an end of year post, or you can just say “This is what I got published this year.” If self-promotion makes you uncomfortable, think of this as an opportunity to reflect on what you’ve accomplished this year and what you’re happy about. John Wiswell’s post is a great example of this (and his stories are also good! go read them!): https://johnwiswell.substack.com/p/all-the-short-stories-i-published. With each story include the link (if available), the wordcount, the date published, and a quick description of what the story is about and why someone might want to read it.
Keep an eye on social media for people who are keeping lists of awards eligibility posts. Don’t be shy in sharing yours! And after you’ve made your eligibility post, remember that this is also a great time to talk about stories that you’ve really enjoyed reading that were first published this year. A rising tide, etc.
Okay, you say, but what else can a writer do? That’s where it gets more complicated. There is definitely a decreasing return on investment at this point. But yes, for many awards, there are other things you can do to increase your story’s visibility.
This is not true of all awards. Notable awards where authors can not offer their work for consideration include the Arthur C. Clarke Award (unless you’re a UK self-publisher), the British Fantasy Award, the BSFA Awards, the Locus Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, the Theodore Sturgeon Award, the Mythopoeic Awards, and the Shirley Jackson Award.

Wait, how do I submit to Best of the Year anthologies?
You can only submit stories that have been published in this year (or will be published in this year). Pay attention to the deadlines. A lot of Best of the Year anthologies close before the end of the year.
There are a few ways that Best-of anthologies are different from submitting to a regular anthology:
1) Most publishers will allow you to submit to a Best-of anthology even if your publishing contract says you’re still within the period of exclusivity. Most contracts have an exclusion written in; if not, ask your original publisher.
2) Your original publisher may already be submitting your story! Some do, some don’t. It depends on the award and the publisher. You may need to ask your publisher about this.
3) Simultaneously submit away!
4) Many Best-of anthologies do not list a pay rate. The standard is $.01/word, but you won’t really know unless they say in their guidelines or after you’re accepted and looking at the contract (congrats!).
5) Don’t expect a rejection letter.
For next year, remember that a lot of these Best-of anthologies prefer to get submissions early to avoid the end-of-year rush. As soon as you get something published, consider submitting it to the appropriate Best-of anthology! This won’t limit your other options for reprint publications.

What I’ve been up to lately, writing-wise:
Between the holidays, the kids’ school stuff, and various minor crises, I’ve been kept pretty busy with non-writing stuff. This is not the first year that I’ve ended up doing a Nov/Dec market list newsletter; I should really just make that the annual plan!
But! On Sunday, I wrote the highest number of words in a day that I’ve managed so far on my current SF work-in-progress. Why? Well, I had a critique group submission deadline and I wanted to finish the chapter and submit it. Who says critique groups aren’t useful?!?
And I should share my own awards eligibility post! I had one new short story published this year, “Beck’s Pest Control and the Case of the Drag Show Downer.” Beck has an unconventional pest control service, a client struggling with a fame-hungry poltergeist, and a daughter having trouble finding friends at her new Deaf school. It’s just another day in the life of a single mom.

The Deadlands wants death-themed speculative novellas (one-time novella submission period opens in January 2023!!!), short fiction, and poetry, pays $.10/word
The Deadlands exists in liminal spaces between life, death, and elsewhere. We are looking for fiction that concerns itself with death—but also everything death may involve.
A ghost in a shadowed wood. An afterlife discovered through a rusted door. An abandoned house in the middle of a haunted field. A skeletal figure moving with intent toward something unseen. Death personified. Burials in troubled lands. A raised scythe against a clouded sky. Memento mori. The rivers of the dead. The sprawling underworlds beneath our feet. The Deadlands would love to see stories from a worldwide perspective, different cultures, different approaches to death. We welcome stories from everyone, everywhere. We are particularly interested in works by writers from historically marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds.
Stories that feature characters impacted by someone passing away and processing the event of death are fair game, but will likely be a hard sell unless they also do something else. Stories about related subjects—zombies, demons, vampires, apocalypses, and the various undead—are not for us. An apocalypse may be your setting, but it isn’t your story. We are absolutely not interested in seeing weird West stories, steampunk tales, or military fiction. We are not interested in stories involving Lovecraft’s mythos. Humor will be a harder sell than heartbreaking. If your story begins with someone waking up, it is not for us.
Novella submissions will open in January 2023, stay tuned!The Deadlands
Basics: themed speculative fiction and poetry, up to 5,000 words for short stories, pays $.10/word, reprints paid $.01/word, will reopen 1/2/2023. Novella submissions will also open in January, details coming soon!
