Taking Submissions: It’s a Grimm Life
August 31, 2014
Deadline: August 31st, 2014
Payment: 1 cent USD per word. We also provide a complimentary electronic version of the book to each contributor.
Tacitus Publishing has decided to take on its first anthology – IT’S A GRIMM LIFE. We are looking for short fiction (1,500 to 5,000 words) that takes a new look at the Grimm Fairy Tales. The story should be placed in a modern setting and incorporating new modern twists. We would like you to push the darker side of these retellings, staying true to the nature of the originals. We are not interested in overwhelming gore or mature content. This should be an original piece of work.
There are two options, either using the submission form on the website or sending an email. For either choice, we ask that you attach the story as an rtf (rich text format) file.
subject line should read: Grimm Anthology
(This maybe pushing it based on the possibility of being overwhelmed, but we may offer quick critiques or suggestions to submitters in our responses. Tacitus Publishing wants to continue with its writer-friendly approach by offering any small amount of assistance we can.)
Open for submissions – May 1st, 2014
Closed for submissions – August 31st, 2014
Projected completion and e-published: 1st Quarter 2015
We pay 1 cent USD per word. We also provide a complimentary electronic version of the book to each contributor.
In the interest of the story building and the publishing process, there is the possibility of minor editorial changes to accepted stories. Understand though, the submission is expected to be a polished and proofread product.
Tacitus Publishing asks for First Electronic publishing rights for all pieces we accept as well as non-exclusive reprint rights, to include Print publishing rights, as we plan to eventually make the volume available in print.
