Taking Submissions: Madam President

March 30, 2022

Deadline: March 30th, 2022
Payment: 3 cents per word
Theme: Female leadership

B Cubed Press is pleased to announce an open call for Madam President.   An anthology about leadership.

President of what you say?

A country?

The universe?

The local PTA?

A paramilitary group of insurrectionist witches?

Your choice.

Your vision must look through the lenses of speculative fiction.  Your world can be the one we live in, far away in time and space, or just around the corner.

Ask yourself how would life work when Madam President is in charge?

Do you want to live there?

Or maybe you want to be Madam President.

This book will be edited by Bob Brown and Debora Godfrey, the team that brought you the best-selling Alternative Apocalypse.

We are looking for good writing, imaginative scenarios, and a good bit of humor in stories, essays or poetry.

This book will be part of the best-selling Alternatives series.  We will be accepting stories, poetry, and essays from now through March 30, 2022.

Story length for our books average about 2200 words but have ranged from 100 to 7500 words. However, we only use one or two stories over 5,000 words and our advice is to keep it under 5K, unless we communicate in advance.

Reprints are accepted, but we hold them to a higher standard and limit them in number. Please let us know about prior publication (reprints) on submission (Moksha has an indicator), not after acceptance (that makes us cranky).

Multiple submissions are accepted.

Simultaneous submissions are tolerated.

Publication date anticipated August 2022.

Pays $.03 a word upon publication, plus a share of the profits.

As always, a share will go to the  ACLU.

Submissions need to include your name, e-mail, wordcount and address on the submission.

If in doubt, SFWA guidelines for short fiction is a great guide: https://www.sfwa.org/2005/01/04/manuscript-format/.

It’s always good to make an editor happy. Adherence to guidelines makes Debora happy.

Poetry should be formatted as you wish it to appear. EACH POEM SHOULD BE SUBMITTED SEPARATELY.

We use Moksha, submissions are accepted at Submission Link MOKSHA.

Just remember, the title on the door is Madam President.

Please click on a submission type to begin a new submission.
