This one is for all of the amazing writers amongst us! If you’ve got a love for werewolves and the talent to write a hell of a story, then here’s your chance to get published! Publisher Hic Dragones and editor Hannah Kate are looking for 3,000 – 5,000 word short stories about female werewolves for an upcoming anthology called Wolf-Girls: Dark Tales of Teeth, Claws and Lycogyny.
Here are the details:
“Submissions wanted for a new anthology of short stories of bad, bad female werewolves. Kicking, biting, clawing, fighting: the new lycogyny is far from pretty. We’re looking for new and established writers to contribute dark fiction tales for a new collection of stories filled with feral and feisty lupine femmes.
What we want: Edgy dark fiction short stories about female werewolves. Male characters are, of course, allowed, but the central character(s) should be female. We have no preconceptions about what ‘female’ or ‘werewolf’ might mean – so all interpretations welcome. Any genre considered: dark fantasy, urban fantasy, horror, sci fi, steampunk, cyberpunk, biopunk, dystopian, crossover. Queer, trans, cis, straight are all welcome. High fantasy, revenge fantasy and anything about ‘lunar cycles’ and ‘Mother Nature’ will be considered, but are discouraged. Rather, we’re looking for new takes on an old legend, stories that challenge and unsettle. (And it should go without saying that we won’t be including any misogyny, misandry, homophobia, transphobia or racism!)”
The submission deadline is April 4th, 2011. If your story is selected you will receive a contributer’s copy as payment, which is more than enough for a newbie writer.
