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.

This article on writing asexual characters, written by an asexual individual, is both intriguing and informative for writers. 

There are few resources on short story structure, and although using beats to structure short stories is new to me, I can see how it could help troubleshoot a story that just isn’t working. 

Writer Unboxed published this post on thirteen ways to promote your book before it comes out, for both traditional and self-published writers.

This curious article on modern alchemical experiments isn’t about writing per se, but works as an excellent resource for writers tackling the subject from a scientific perspective.

  1. Thanks for sharing that article about alchemy! That was really interesting. I’ve read a little before that modern chemistry has its roots in alchemy, and also that modern astronomy has its roots in astrology. I guess it’s not something modern scientists like to admit to, but it’s still good to know about science’s history.
