Taking Submissions: Forth Flashes
October 31, 2016
Deadline: October 31st, 2016
Dear Whortleberry Friends;
Hope you had a fun and happy summer. But September is almost here – that means it’s time to start on our next book! We’re trying something different this time. The title is FORTY FLASHES, and the idea is that the book will contain 40 flash fiction stories – 500 words tops – in the fantasy-science fiction genres we love best. Submission for these stories will be from Sept. 1 to October 31, with publication as soon after that as we can put the book together.
Payment for stories – will be $6. Well, golly, it’s only 500 words, so you will receive 1.2 cents per word, which is the most we have ever paid! (Heinlein and Bradbury used to write for 1 cent a word back in the Silver Age, if that is any consolation.)
Arthur Sanchez is Associate Editing this project, and he has a very interesting essay awaiting you on the topic – look for it on our comment page at http://WhortleberryPress.com.
Remember, a flash fiction story has the same requirements as any other story – characters, setting, complications, resolutions) – it’s just all in 500 words. Have fun! (And don’t forget to add your author bio before you send us your story.)
