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 or inspire a new one. Each call will contain a speculative element and will offer payment upon acceptance.

Unlocking the Magic

Eligibility: original, noblebright fantasy stories from 3000-6000 words. The theme is mental illness and the editors want stories which empower those who suffer from them. Stories which encourage and show the bravery of asking for help and the possibilities said help brings.

Caveat: the editors want stories of perseverance and strength through mental illness in a fantasy setting. No horror, no science fiction.

What makes this call stand out: this project is an attempt to subvert harmful mental illness tropes in fantasy, and that’s worth applauding.

Payment: $300.00 per story, plus royalties (listed on the American Kickstarter site)

Submit by: November 1, 2018
