Deadline: April 15th, 2019
Payment: 2 cents a word and royalties or a flat rate of $25
B Cubed Press is pleased to announce three new open calls for anthologies to be released in 2019. Submissions open immediately and close on April 15, 2019.
Submissions should be in Word or RTF attachments, using SFWA manuscript format. Include your name and email on the document, e-mails and stories get separated, and that is never good.
Include “SUBMISSION” and the title of the anthology to which you are submitting in the email subject line.
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 on publication.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions are okay. Reprints are allowed, but they are held to a higher standard.
Read on for details on individual stories.
ALTERNATIVE BEDTIME STORIES FOR PROGRESSIVE PARENTS
Edited by Diana Payton and Bob Brown
We are looking for nursery rhymes, poetry, and stories that can be read and enjoyed by children of all ages. There is no lower word limit on poems or nursery rhymes.
The work can be completely original or derived from fairy tales, bible stories, folklore, myths, or similar sources so long as acknowledgement is made. Absolutely no fan fiction of work that is not in the public domain.
For stories we’re looking for 500 to 3,000 words. We anticipate publishing in fall of 2019.
