Based in Batesville, Arkansas, Pro Se Productions has become a leader on the cutting edge of New Pulp Fiction in a very short time.

Pulp Fiction, known by many names and identified as being action/adventure, fast paced, hero versus villain, over the top characters and tight, yet extravagant plots, is experiencing a resurgence like never before. And Pro Se Press, publishing New Pulp since August, 2011, is a major part of the revival, one of the reasons that New Pulp is growing by leaps and bounds!

Pro Se is the place to find Super Heroes, Explorers, Fairies, Werewolves, Men's Men, and Femme Fatales.  Specializing primarily in prose books, anthologies, and magazines, Pro Se has made a commitment to 'Put the Monthly Back into Pulp' and continues to do that successfully, producing at least one New Pulp work every month!  

Pro Se is an innovator in New Pulp, continually refining its presentation and product and working on exciting new veins of New Pulp to bring to readers and fans of all ages everywhere!

Writers Wanted!

 WRITERS WANTED!

Always continually striving to provide more of the best in Genre Fiction and New Pulp for you, Pro Se Productions has a continual list of anthologies and imprints that are open to writers to submit to.  We like to call it The Pro Se Open.  If you're a writer interested in the possibility of writing for Pro Se, bookmark this page and check it regularly to see if projects are still available and to keep up with all the new concepts open for submission from Pro Se Productions.

How You can submit to a Pro Se Open project is as follows-

1. An upcoming Collection or Imprint with openings is listed in the Pro Se Open. 

2. Submissions are accepted following a 2-3 paragraph proposal for the story and at least a two page writing sample if you are a new writer submitting to Pro Se, unless the specific call states otherwise.

3. Submissions will be reviewed and those writers whose proposals are accepted will be given a deadline to complete the story, this deadline being typically 60-90 days.

4. Submissions to the book will be closed when all open slots in the listed work are filled.

5. Editors assigned to these projects will follow up, monitor, and make sure work is being done. Steps will be taken to move the anthology along as planned if work is not being done in a timely manner.  

The Pro Se Open will be updated periodically as to adding new collections and removing ones that have been filled. Some of the collections have story bibles to go with them and are listed so. Email submissions@prose-press.com to request bibles when appropriate.


 

CURRENT OPEN PROJECTS

THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA

One of the most evil literary villains ever created stands largely forgotten by many, yet volumes of new stories remain to be told about the intelligence and insanity of this man. Pro Se Productions endeavors to do just that by announcing open submission calls for an anthology spotlighting Guy Boothby’s best known creation.  New tales will be told of THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA!

First appearing in A Bid for Fortune in 1895, Boothby’s Dr. Nikola was a genius hellbent on discovering the secret of immortality as well as world domination.  Considered by many to be similar to Doyle’s Moriarty or Rohmer’s Fu Manchu, in many ways, Nikola went beyond the boundaries set by his evil peers in the realm of nefarious masterminding.  Walking a razor’s edge between lunacy and larceny, Nikola blazed a deadly trail through five novels.  And now, Pro Se Productions is ready to delve further into the maniac scientist’s mind in THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA!

Stories for THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA must be set in a period reasonable to when Nikola would have lived, according to the original five novels. Any elements will be considered in the stories, but writers are highly encouraged to stay within the boundaries established in the original novels. If writers cannot acquire the original novels, various resources with information exist on the internet and/or a request can be made of Pro Se Productions at submissions@prose-press.com to provide links.

Stories for THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA must be 10,000 words in length. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to submissions@prose-press.com. Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals. Authors whose proposals are accepted must submit the first four pages of their accepted stories as quickly as possible for review by Pro Se staff. Final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following acceptance of proposals. 

THE MADNESS OF DR. NIKOLA is a part of the Pro Se Anthology Project, THE PRO SE OPEN, and is scheduled to be published in the 2016-2018 calendar years, depending on submissions and other factors.

FOUR PROPOSALS ACCEPTED, TWO SLOTS REMAINS OPEN


WHEN LEGENDS MEET: PULP OBSCURA TEAM UP!

Pro Se Productions has become known for reviving rare and often forgotten Pulp characters in its PULP OBSCURA imprint since 2012.  Great stories of characters ranging from Armless O’Neil to Senorita Scorpion to Richard Knight have been and continue to be told.  But what about when two of these lost heroes cross paths?

Stories for WHEN LEGENDS MEET must involve a team up between characters that will be listed below.  The team up must consist of only two characters from the list.  The team up must also coincide as best as possible with the character’s established continuity, including what stories are available to the author from the character’s original run as well as new material created by Pro Se Productions.  It can be assumed that these characters live in a shared universe and actions affect all involved.  Continuity editing will be closely watched and considered in the submissions process.

KIMBERLY RICHARDSON'S PULP GOTHIC

An innovative Publisher of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announced an open call for submissions to an anthology that not only expands the boundaries of modern Pulp fiction, but does so under the guiding hand of one of today’s most skilled and inventive authors.

The company is now taking submissions for stories to be included in Kimberly Richardson’s Pulp Gothic.

To be considered for inclusion in Kimberly Richardson’s Pulp Gothic, stories may be set in any time period.  Those submitting proposals should be familiar with the Gothic genre enough that the submitted concept, regardless of how pulpy the writing style is, contain multiple aspects and points that set it apart as ‘Gothic.’

Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals. Authors whose proposals are accepted must submit the first four pages of their accepted stories as quickly as possible for review by Ms. Richardson and Pro Se staff.
