December 14th

Only ten days left! How are you all making out with these prompts? So far I’ve finished Weird Christmas, Dreaming Robot Press MG story, Iceland story, 2 poems for Blue Mountain Arts, and the self-acceptance piece.

I’ve really enjoyed dabbling in different genres. So fun!

Magical Mail Writing Contest

Write a letter for Legendary Letters! The letter should be around 3-4 paragraphs long, and 200-300 words each. You’re going to choose a character and holiday on their website.

Submissions are due December 15th at 11:59pm PST. Check out their website for more details πŸ™‚

Cast of Wonders

This is a young adult short fiction market. They are open to stories up to 6,000 words long. They seek fiction that reflects the entire spectrum of human experience.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must be anonymous.

They’re looking for stories that evoke wonder, are a little unreal, and resonate emotionally and deeply. They aim for the 12-17 age range.

Interestingly enough, the stories are presented in audio format! Readers cannot skim past ‘boring bits’. Cast of Wonders looks for stories that have well-defined characters, engaging dialogue, and strong pacing.

They love high fantasy. Elves, secondary worlds, magic, and dragons! They also love modern, alternate history, and urban fantasy. They like science fiction like near and far future, space opera. They must be accessible to their target audience.

They’ll accept comedy, paranormal romance, superheroes, and steampunk. It should all inspire a sense of wonder.

Preferences

Stories between 3000 and 4500 words and fit their target episode length of 30 minutes.

Flash fiction under 1000 words.

Multiple and Simultaneous Submissions

They do not accept multiple submissions from an author at the same time.
