Welcome to this week’s edition of Submission Sundays! Every week I bring you a unique call for submissions to help you find a home for your stories and maybe inspire a new one. Each call will contain a speculative element and will offer payment upon acceptance.
This week, we’re tackling:
Grimm, Grit, and Gasoline: an anthology of dieselpunk and decopunk fairy tales
Eligibility: fairy tales and retellings in alternative histories between WWI and WWII, up to 7500 words.
Caveat: this particular call doesn’t OPEN until August 1. It’s a ways off but it gives you the chance to come up with a clever story, polish it, and send it through your critique groups before you submit. It also gives newer writers the chance to familiarize themselves with the styles of dieselpunk and decopunk before writing.
What makes this call stand out: Grimm as dieselpunk makes my imagination tingle
Payment: $0.01 per word, plus a contributor’s copy
Submit by: September 30th, 2018
Good luck and happy writing!
