Submission Call:

We invite writers to submit original short stories for "Pixelated," an anthology exploring the intersection of freedom, technology, and social issues.


We seek stories that creatively blend these themes, emphasizing their interconnections, as technology's dual role in empowering and limiting freedom is shaped by and shapes social concerns, highlighting the importance of a balanced approach for positive societal impact.

Bonus Tip: We love robots, explicit scenes and talking cats


We look for stories in genres such as transgressive, sci-fi, New weird, and horror.
