We prefer to see stories that are between 750 and about 5000 words in length. Poems have no minimum word count.
Production, Publication and distribution
We will arrange for the production, publication, distribution and marketing of the book. An e-book version might also be released.
We ask for first serial rights on any story we publish. This means that the story should not have appeared anywhere else, either in print or online. (This includes publication on an author's own website.)
Multiple and simultaneous submissions
It's fine to send us more than one story at a time. Please send them through the form separately, not together in one document. For multiple short story submission, we 'd suggest you use the online submission manager.
We accept submissions from authors all over the Hindi/English speaking world. All submissions must be in English or Hindi. The book may be published in multiple languages.
Our response time
We have received a large number of submissions. There are so many good stories! We are currently reviewing the submissions we have received.
We will let you know if your submission has been accepted by August 31, 2013. For any queries you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions will be reviewed by an independent review panel.
Those whose stories get published, will get a printed copy of the book. The book will be published in both US and India and the proceeds from the royalties will go back to India to the victims of train accidents or such via the non-profit PickaFight.in.
*Railonama is not in anyway associated with the Indian Railways.
