We're doing it again. Bigger. Better.
About the Project
Up & Up Media is "The Indie Punk Label of Publishing, for the Garage Bands of Writing."
Our purpose is to bridge the gap between "Emerging Writer" and "Established Writer", and ultimately to take you from "indie writer" to "published super-successful and famous writer".
Our MIXTAPE books are compilations of short fiction by Aussie authors, and we are currently looking for submissions. Give us the edgy stuff, the dark and deep stuff. We want speculative fiction, literary fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, horror... Whatever you've got. You know that story you wrote that would be impossible to sell to a publisher because it's just so different and unmarketable? That's our jam!
Most important to know is that these MIXTAPE books are, if nothing else, just an excuse to meet lots of readers and writers, and to have a HUGE BOOK LAUNCH PARTY at Up & Up Media HQ. So if you're a hermit writer... Good! We're busting you out of your shell.
All contributing authors will be paid at the standard industry rate of 7c per word - however there is a word limit of 2,000 words. You're welcome to submit something longer than that, just know that the cut-off for pay is fixed at that point.
If you'd like to submit a story, fill out the submission form HERE.
Still Open! (TBA)
We sincerely hope that as a Mixtape Author, you will attend the book launch party when the book is released.

Thanks, and good luck!
