Taking Submissions: Humans are the Problem: A Monster’s Anthology
Deadline: May 15th, 2021
Payment: 5 cents per word
Theme: Monsters adapting to the 31st century
Weird Little Worlds Press is looking for contributors to its inaugural Kickstarter science fiction, fantasy, and horror anthology. Bring your weird and help us tell the best monster stories you’ve ever imagined.
What we want:
- Something creative and fresh
- Monster tropes that are turned inside out and upside down
- Funny, scary, and/or plotty
- Big stories that are told in a small way
- Crisp writing with all the fat cut away
- Diverse voices of all backgrounds, nationalities, gender identifications, sexual orientations, races, religions, and cultures
What we don’t want:
- Anything that reminds us of “Bright” or “Onward”
- Fan fiction
- Previously published stories
- Boring monsters doing boring stuff
- Excessive gore, sex, or swearing (we have a hard PG-13 bent, so we don’t HATE it, but it has to be pretty pertinent and defensible)
- A narrative-disguised soap box — we aren’t your platform for preaching ANYTHING
- Anything unedited. At least run it by another set of eyes before you send it.
