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.
The Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide
Eligibility: Original science fiction adventure stories for readers aged 8 to 12-years-old from 3000 to 6000 words.
Caveat: judging is blind, so make sure your manuscript is scrubbed of your identifying information before submitting.
What makes this call stand out: a sale to the annual Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide is considered a professional sale and qualifies writers to join the SFWA.
Payment: $0.06 per word
Submit by: December 15th, 2018
