Anthology calls for later reference

Don’t mind this – it’s a list of upcoming anthologies that I may be interested in submitting to. Hey, you might be interested too, what do I know? And if you happen to be aware of any submission calls for upcoming anthologies that you think I might want to have a go at, let me know.

Blurring the Line by Cohesion Press  (horror) – http://cohesionpress.com/submissions/anthologies/ – Max 5000 words; 1 August to 31 October 2014

Hear Me Roar by Ticonderoga Publications (strong women) – http://ticonderogapublications.com/index.php/about-us/submissions/hear-me-roar-anthology – 2500-7500 words; 21 April to 5 November 2014.

The Never Never Land by CSFG Publications (Australian speculative) – http://www.csfg.org.au/2014/02/20/call-for-submissions-the-never-never-land/ – 1000-5000 words; 1 June to 31 August 2014.

Clam, if you can’t think of something great for that last one I will eat my own face off [1].


Update 1:

[1] Bloodthirsty spectacle not guaranteed


  1. I think I may have talked myself into an ideological commitment *not* to submit fiction for money. It is good to hear the Midnight Echo 11 is still a thing, though, since we did put a story in for that one. 🙂

  2. Clam could submit and give any monetary reward to a worthy charity…I’m told that’s the done thing for those who don’t like surrendering their creativity to crass commercialism.

  3. Here you go, Lexifab me lad. And sundry dedicated followers of Lexifab, of course!

  4. Clam – that’s fair enough, though I think the value of paying markets is getting your work in front of readers with whom you’d never otherwise connect (or at least, not without monumental self-promotional exertions all out of proportion and good taste).

    I love that story though – it’s almost certainly the sort of thing they are looking for (except for all the specific details, but that’s a minor point, right?)

    Jenny – I suspect Clam will note that it is not *just* the money at issue, but the commercialisation of art. In theory he could always refuse payment or donate it, as you say.
