Scrappy Capy Distro will occasionally have open calls for submissions for anthology zines on a given topic. Check this page for instructions on how to submit, any particular guidelines for an open call, and what calls are currently open.

We are an anarchist publisher.

This means that first and foremost, texts need to be in alignment with the principles of non-hierarchy and anti-authoritarianism. There is no place for sexism, racism, queerphobia, xenophobia, ableism, or any other forms of discrimination.

We do not accept content generated by machine learning (ML), "artificial intelligence" (AI), or large language models (LLMs).


  1. Write your text in English or German (ideally both).
  2. Save your document in .txt, .md, .odt, .docx, or .pdf format.
  3. Submit to us via our email address on our contact page. Include the name of the topic you're submitting to in the subject of the email. If you want your name or pronouns (in both English and German) in the final print, please include those in the email.
  4. We will review your text and may request some edits. You may accept or reject them and send us an updated version, but we are not obligated to accept texts as is.
  5. Authors will be notified if their text is accepted or rejected.
  6. We will translate your text from English to German or vice versa.
  7. The zine will be published, and authors will be notified.

Open Submissions

Harbour – an anarchist literary journal

We are looking for submissions for the second issue of our literary journal of anarchist fiction. Submissions can be in the form of short stories, poetry, or artwork.

Fall 2024 (Issue 2) submissions will be open from September 1st to 30th.

Poetry: Please submit a maximum of three poems. Each must be fewer than 50 lines long. We accept all kinds of poetry, including classical forms and free verse.

Short fiction: We will accept a maximum of three short stories. Each short story shouldn't exceed 5,000 words. Note the word count of each piece in your submission.

Artwork: Please submit a maximum of three works of visual art. Art will be printed on A4 pages. All art submissions must be .png at 300 DPI or .svg vector images.

Additions to the process:

  • Write your text in English or German. We are accepting translated works into English and can publish both the original and the translated works. However, due to the intricacies of translating fiction, this is not something we’re offering at the moment.
  • Please include a third-person author/artist bio of roughly 50 words or fewer.
