Good luck!! I’m going to try and work on a story to submit. Not many days left but here’s to trying ❤ Find out more information here. Scroll down to the bottom.
I hope you had a good weekend. It was a full one but a fun one, for me. Today, I rested a bit and wrote a little. How are you all making out with writing this month?
So, I have two special submission opportunities seeing as I missed yesterday’s post.
Alas, have fun with these two ❤
Enchanted Conversation Magazine’s February “Love Issue”
OPEN until January 20th, 2019
They are looking for comics and stories that explore all aspects of love within myths, folktales, or fairy tales. Love can be tragic or magical, end happily ever after, or unrequited. Have fun with this submission!
You can use original characters or re-tellings of established stories. They seek stories set in locations around the world. You can go ancient or modern.
I’ve finished my Weird Christmas story from Day 1 and started Day 2’s submission 🙂 I’m writing a short story about a robotic dog and a little girl. The dog is inspired by my own Maggie, a sixteen-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who happens to celebrate her birthday on Christmas Day 😀
Yesterday’s submission looks fun too. I think I’ll try and work on that today.
I thought this opportunity looked pretty unique because they are a Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) qualifying site. If you get a piece submitted, it will count towards your SWFA qualifications. Kinda cool, huh?
Let’s look at some more details.
They have four submissions a year. For this season, it begins on December 21st at midnight E.S.T. and ends on December 28th at midnight E.S.T.
They pay 6¢ per word for new fiction, 2¢ per word for fiction reprints, 2 – 6¢ per word for new fact-based work, 1- 4¢ per word for reprinted fact articles.
