Do you dream of other realms or worlds beyond our own?
If so, we are looking for your speculative fiction short story. If it’s horror, fantasy, or science fiction we want to see what you have to offer!
We aren’t looking for stories in which romance is central to the storyline, but a passing crush is okay. Not every story has to have a happy ending, and we’d love to see stories in which the characters subvert accepted social and gender roles. We want to see a princess save the kingdom or captain her own ragtag group of space pirates! Does your quiet, introverted bookworm have hidden, mad kung-fu skills and gets teleported to another realm to meet their unknown grandparents who happen to be gods? We want to read that story!
Do you have a story that’s guaranteed to make us want to sleep with the lights on once we’re done reading? Send it our way. If your story has POC or LGBTQIA characters, please let us know, as we strive to include underrepresented voices.
We’re looking for works between 3k-10k long.
Deadline: November 30th, 2022 Publication: Jan/Feb 2023 Payment: We will pay $25.00 per story as well as an ebook and print copy of the anthology. Multiple Submissions: We do accept multiple submissions, but if your story is chosen, please let us know if it has been accepted anywhere else before publication.
All queries should use the Contact Form. In your subject line please state, QUERY. In the body please write the title of your manuscript as well as a summary of your story.
If we are interested in your story we will contact you for more information. In your reply we like to see your bio and your writing experience. Please include your story in the body of the email. We will not open attachments.
