Anthologies
« on: April 06, 2015, 04:02:29 pm »
So, I periodically look for anthology calls to submit to even though I am terrible at short stories. I tend to come up with ideas that either turn into something bigger than a short story, or never quite get done. But I figure, in case anyone else is interested in trying to get a short story published, I'd put up some of the links I've come across here. Anyone else that finds similar things is welcome to post them too.

Gothic Blue Book looking for "a story or poem taking place in a haunted hotel, inn, or bed and breakfast". Horror. Deadline: August 15th. Click the link to check out more details.

Frozen Fairy Tales looking for fairytale style fantasies with a winter theme. Deadline: May 15th 2015. Click the link for the details.

Sirens an upcoming anthology looking for speculative short stories about sirens. Opens from August 15th - November 15th 2015.

Dark Markets also has a list of anthologies. Mostly horror but with speculative thrown in the mix if you want to go searching.

Red Moon Romance is looking for some pretty funny themed erotic stories for anthologies if anyone is into writing that. Scroll down for their anthology list and submission guidelines.

First one is called Rough Edges. Cowboy themed. Open Sumbission period, February 12th - July 31st. Pays in % of profits and a copy of  the anthology.

The other is Covalent Bonds. Geek themed. Open Submission period, March 15th - December 15th. Pays in % of profits and a copy of the anthology.

If I read this right, you can join a group  and compete to be in a published anthology.  It's $25 to submit

http://www.christinaescamilla.com/open-the-international-write-fight-2015/

Looks like it's only open another week (5/31) -- 1500 words.  You can do it - right?

And then this one (also due 5/31) is free.   You submit your own story typically 1500-6000 words, but they will take up to 12000 words.

As is this one (due 5/31)

Need more time -- Saturday Evening Post (7/1)

OMG - Had to add this one. Zombie stories from the zombie point of view (6/1)

World Weaver Press is opening another anthology call on September 15th until December 15th. It's for military scifi no more than 10k! Remember not to send in before the 15th.
