Things have been pretty busy on my end, I’ve got an event I’m making some costumes for so every minute I have I’m thinking about that. Not necessarily doing anything to get them ready, but I’m definitely thinking about it every minute of the day!
I’ve found some interesting places looking for short stories so I thought I would share them with you!
First up, “Three Time Travellers Walk Into…” is an anthology that is looking for short stories of about 4000 words where the main characters are famous or legendary people from history. Examples such as Mulan and King Arthur are given so you have a lot of fun with this! The deadline is the 9th of December and they are paying 5 cents per word. Link
This sounds absolutely fantastic and I am definitely going to try my hand at this one!
Next, “Into the Forest” is an anthology looking for female identifying writers to write stories featuring and inspired by Baba Yaga! The story should be under 5000 words and they are paying 6 cents per word. The deadline for this is the end of the year, so make sure you’ve got your story in by January 1st 2022! Link
And finally, this one is a wee bit early since it’s not due until April 2022 but I loved the idea so I wanted to show it to you all!
Cthulhu FhCon! An anthology set in a convention centre where the veil between worlds is thin and creatures of myth and legend might fall through! They are paying 3 cents per word and want stories between 2000 and 6000 words long. Link
Anyway, that’s all from me today. I hope you are all having a lovely time and are looking forward to the new start that the coming new year will offer. It’s been a tough couple of years for the world so I really hope that 2022 works out for us all,
Stay safe out there,
