Submission dates changed

While we at Pure Slush like to plan ahead, some times we grow over-enthusiastic and then, later, have to pull back a little …

And so it is with submission dates for Forthcoming projects.

Dates were announced some time ago and amended and now they have been amended again. (On Sunday 20th November 2022, to be precise.)

(“Why?” you ask. “Because it’s organic,” we reply.)

Actually, there are many reasons for this. If you really want to delve, email us at

We apologise for any inconvenience, but think it’s better to delay than cancel.

Summer progress

If you have submitted for the Pure Slush anthologies Appointment at 10.30 Pure Slush Vol. 22 and Work Lifespan Vol. 5, please note:

Appointment at 10.30 is being proof-read (i.e. it’s formatted and in book form); and

Work is being worked through (i.e. we are processing through the submissions, so have accepted some but still have others to read).

Why is it taking so long?

Well … we’re still in holiday mode, basically, and will be for much of January.

This is the long(er) summer holiday in Australia (where Bequem Publishing is based) and we’re feeling that summer holiday vibe.

Plus, we’ve been putting time into:

• establishing our new imprint Erectus and

Everytime Press has been fielding non-fiction manuscript queries.

Thanks for your patience.
