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. One curse word in a story may be accepted, if it is necessary to the story. Otherwise, leave it out.
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 is May 25th through July 15th. Authors should receive a response by September 30th.
Projected publish date: March 2017.
Authors will be expected to help with promotions, will receive a free pdf copy of the anthology, and if possible, will possibly receive a token payment around $2. (The editor will have to work out if she can pay people outside the USA via paypal and this money will come out of her limited budget.)
If your story is accepted, you will receive a copy of a contract, and after we both sign it, it’s a done deal.
