Hi friends, how are you making out?
Today, I’m going to share a fun submission opportunity. I shared about the first Grumpy Old Gods Anthology during #24DaysofWriting. Well, they had nearly 100 submissions and 11 spaces to fill! They’ve decided to send out a call for volume 2.
What’s the Call About?
The editors want stories about mythical Gods or Goddesses who are retired, missing from their post, waning, or ignoring their job responsibilities. They’re seeking speculative fiction at around 3000-4000 words.
The deadline to submit is March 30th, 2019. You can send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Find out more information about the call here.
Why You Should Consider Submitting
Personally, I find these submission opportunities a lot of fun. I get to flex my creative muscles and work with a specific prompt. The story I wrote for the first call was a ton of fun. I wrote about Beira from The Winter Crone and created her origin story.
Even though this story wasn’t selected for the anthology, I know where I can use it someday. I’m hoping to research and outline a novel based on Beira and Alaor this summer when I get a chance.
These prompts are fun. You can take a break from editing/drafting novels 🙂 Happy Wednesday!
Until next time,
