Want your story, comic, photo or illustration to be featured in a huge collection of Zombie short fiction? Make a pledge to help fund the 2013 Rotorua Zombie Walk and we’ll make you famous!

The Rotorua Zombie Walk is now in its fourth year and we want to make it bigger, better and more refined than ever. Proceeds from our walk since 2010 have been donated to the Rotorua Brain Injury Association. So far we've raised over $8000 for this awesome organisation, but I want to raise that this year alone! And it can be done... with your help.

We're putting together the biggest collection of Zombie short fiction and images ever combined in one book and publishing it digitally and we want your submissions! If you're an author, illustrator, comic sketch artist or photographer, make a pledge and submit your work and we will include it in this awesome collection. The coolest bit is, you don't have to be a previously published author to get published in this book. Every submission will be published as long as you follow the basic guidelines below.

Proceeds from your pledge will go towards logistics costs and merchandise for this year’s Rotorua Zombie Walk and its associated events (business quiz night and annual Halloween party).

Any remaining funds from the project along with all funds raised from the Zombie Walk events will be donated to the Rotorua Brain Injury Association. Because seeing Zombies have been eating brains all these years, we figure it’s time they gave back!

The Book

The Zombie book of short fiction will be a collaboration by everyone who makes a pledge to our cause. Putting it together and publishing it is our way of saying THANK YOU for taking the time to donate your hard earned cash.

This is an awesome way to get your name out there and showcase your work to thousands of fans of Zombie and horror fiction as they become infected by the awesomeness of your talents!

Everyone who pledges and opts for one of the rewards will be given a digital copy of the book. Publishing will be digital only unless we are made an offer by a print publisher (we are open to discussion).

On the day we reach our goal here’s what will happen:

Title submission pledges: you will receive the email address to send your title suggestion. All stories will not have been collected yet, so think carefully and make your suggestion fairly general.

Story, Comic Strip, Photographer and Illustrator submissions: you will receive the URL to upload your files. As long as they are Zombie related and you stick within the publishing
guidelines below, we will include them in the book!

Dedication pledge: we will contact you to get the details for your dedication.

Once the book is published, all pledges will be sent a copy!

Publishing guidelines:

  1. Submissions must not contain anything defamatory, obscene, illegal or otherwise inappropriate as may be deemed by the Rotorua Zombie Walk.
  2. Written submissions must have been edited to the best of your ability, or better yet, edited by a professional prior to sending them to us. Submissions will be published 'as is' so it is in your best interest to make them professional.
  3. Ensure any sex, gore or violence is used in context.
  4. All submissions must be in English.
  5. No corrections can be made after receipt, nor pledge refunded.
  6. Once submitted, works cannot be withdrawn.
  7. Written entries must be submitted in .doc or .odt format. Images must be submitted as print quality .jpegs.
  8. The Rotorua Zombie Walk holds the right to refuse submissions or request alterations to any person not adhearing to these guidelines.
