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, consider submitting a story to:
A Punk Rock Future
Eligibility: original speculative stories from 350-6000 words dealing with a punk rock future. Not steampunk, dieselpunk, ecopunk, solarpunk, or penguinpunk (okay, I made that one up) but punk punk. Sit back, listen to the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, crank up some Clash. That punk. The original punk.
Caveat: no torture, porn, zombies, or vampires. But what about my vampire story, Fab Vicious? He pierced his sparkling eyebrow with a slightly disinfected safety pin and tortures grammarians by spelling anarchy with a K! Nope. Save it for another anthology, pal.
What makes this call stand out: this is original stuff that’s going to take some serious creative chops. Which is why they’re offering professional rates. Are you up to the challenge?
Payment: $0.06 per word
