Why are submissions closed? Honestly, it's a time issue. We all have day jobs. King Shot Press is what we do after work or on weekends. There just isn't enough manpower to handle open submissions on a regular basis. Hopefully that'll change as this experiment continues.
What do ya mean radical fiction? Left-perspective literature minus the
academic shit. KSP aims to publish books about issues like
anti-authortiarianism, racial egalitarianism, feminism, class struggle,
secularity, etc through storytelling—fiction & non-fiction that's both anarchic in spirit and innovative in form. But first and foremost, seriously good books.
What's with the Zombie JFK? It's pretty fuckin' cool is what. Check it out. Zach Shonkwiler drew it, based on a design by Matthew Revert.
What's your connection to Broken River Books? King Shot Press was originally an imprint of Broken River Books until early 2016, when our schedules ceased to line up and it just seemed easier to part ways. We're still cool though!
Can I become an intern for KSP? No, sorry. Having interned ourselves, we feel it's too thankless a gig to be worth it for anyone. So we just go without. (We're bad at capitalism if you can't already tell.) If you're looking to get network in somewhere, just show up at cons and readings and meet people. Beer and cigarette breaks will change your life more than workshops and interning.
