Alternative Apocalypses Open Call
Will close on April 15, 2019.
Stories of endings, beginnings, and change. As always, a political bent doesn’t hurt but not required. The apocalypse can be big or small, personal or world shattering. Humor is always good. Satire is excellent.
We will include some good poetry and thoughtful essays if you have them. For stories we’re looking for 500 to 5000 words.
We anticipate releasing at World Con in Dublin.
Edited by Debora Godfrey and Bob Brown
Submissions should be in Word or RTF attachments, using SFWA manuscript format. Include your name AND email on the document. We’re pretty organized, but sometimes emails and stories get separated, and that is NEVER GOOD.
Email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject should be: “SUBMISSION Alternative Apocalypse”. Really. Just copy it – we’ve made it simple.
Pay is 2 cents a word and royalties for stories. For very short fiction, poems, and nursery rhymes, we offer an option of a flat $25 to the writer. Payment is made on publication.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions okay, reprints as well, but they are held to a higher standard.
