Taking Submissions: Borne in the Blood

December 15, 2023

Deadline: December 15th, 2023
Payment: $20
Theme: Stories about things that are carried in the blood. Be it magic, disease or something else – it must be Borne in the Blood.

Blood is thicker than water. // You can spill your life’s blood. // Blood Brothers

All of these are sayings that are associated with blood.

Our blood carries the oxygen we breathe throughout our body.

Our blood carries our immune system’s defenses against disease and infection.

And sadly our blood can also carry infection and disease that will attack our body.

WolfSinger Publications is seeking stories about things that are carried in the blood. Be it magic, disease or something else – it must be Borne in the Blood. We will be donating proceeds from Borne in the Blood to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.

Any time, any place from ancient civilizations to far in the future as well as fantasy realms are acceptable.

Break the story writing rules if you want. If you use a tried-and-true plotline, twist it in an original and interesting way. Original stories are preferred. Query for reprints.

ALL writers are encouraged to submit. Doesn’t matter if you’re a pro with years of credits, a beginner just starting out or a teenager – please feel free to send the editor a story. In your cover email, please tell the editor a bit about yourself and a quick one-line synopsis of the story. Include genre. If experimental, please explain the type or how so the editor doesn’t edit out the form or reject it out of hand. Thank you.

In the Subject line please put: Submission: Blood, Title of your story, your last name.

Attach as a .rtf format. Send to: [email protected]

Submissions open: Jun 15th and close: Dec 15th (DO NOT SUBMIT PRIOR TO Jun 15th)

Release Date: Early 2024

Payment: $20.00 flat rate.

This is a charity anthology and proceeds from sales of Borne in the Blood will be donated to: the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.

All genres will be considered with the exception of erotica. However, I do not want to see a ton of vampire and shifter stories unless you can find a way to make them truly original. (Sparkly Vampires need not apply 😊)

No multiple or simultaneous submissions.

Length 1000-7000 words. Will consider flash fiction if it’s well-written. Times New Roman 12. Standard manuscript formatting. Any manuscripts submitted incorrectly will be rejected.

PG-13 rating, please. No erotic or explicit sexual content.
