Submissions call (YA anthology)
Back from WorldCon. More about that experience later. Right now I'm having a brain storm and so we're putting out a special call for submissions. In my head I'm imagining retellings of things like Anansi, Baba Yaga, American folktales (with an eye toward Spanish, Native American and/or African American focused stories), Chinese, Japanese, or Korean folktales. We'd also welcome other non-Eurocentric retellings (Middle Eastern, South American, Maori, etc.) of folk tales. Now, this isn't going to be an anthology of those original tales (though I do want copies of the source material so I can give the audience some background) instead I want to see them twisted. Take it to the future, take it off planet, set modern folks loose in the past...basically let's create a whole new stage for fantasy. I'm thinking a 5,000 word minimum with a 25,000 word maximum. And a Dec 1st deadline. Payment of $30 and a free copy of the anthology. It has a loose title of "Globalization...The Fantasy Edition" but that's just my cold medicine drugged brain at work. Expect a title contest for this anthology too. Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, submissions should follow our usual guidelines and be emailed to the firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to spread the word!
