Wing's Edge: A Fantastically Short Fiction Anthology CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Wing's Edge: A Fantastically Short Fiction Anthology CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Wing’s Edge: A Fantastically Short Fiction Anthology

Call for Submissions:
Need:  hint fiction stories of 25 words, exactly.
Need:  drabble fiction stories of 101 words, exactly.
Need:  flash fiction stories between 250 and 1,000 words.

Theme: Flights of Fantasy/Speculative Fiction
These stories should fall into the realm of fantasy and speculative fiction, and include the idea of flight in some form: birds, griffins, dragons, jetpacks, steampunk hang-gliders, space ships, etc.

These stories should also be “clean” in a PG to PG-13 way. No graphic violence, sex, nudity, or excessive cursing. 

Action-packed adventure is okay. Sword-fighting scenes and fist fights are okay. Just don’t go gory. Romance can be sweet or hinted, but not graphic.

The story needs to be the work of the submitting author, and cannot be fan fiction.

The editor’s preferred forms of speculative fiction include space opera, science fiction, dystopian, traditional fantasy, super-powered fantasy, and urban fantasy.

Please do not send stories about zombies, vampires, ghosts, or other types of the undead. If you write a story that includes those features, then send it to a different market. It’s not that the editor has never read stories with those features, but this is not the market for them.

Formats accepted: docx, or rtf, or copy and pasted into the body of an e-mail. Also, please include a one to two sentence bio, two links to your favorite forms of social media, and one link for one book, if you have one.

The reading period has been extended until July 2017.

Projected publish date: Fall 2017. 

Authors will be expected to help with promotions and will receive a free pdf of the anthology. 

If your story is accepted, you will receive a copy of a contract, and after we both sign it, it’s a done deal.
