Taking Submissions: Meet Cute: A Collection of First Encounters

Deadline: December 16, 2016
Payment: $10 and a contributor’s copy

What is Meet Cute?

Meet Cute: A Collection of First Encounters is a collaborative anthology of micro fiction stories.

A “meet cute” is a scene in which two characters meet in a way that is amusing, unusual, or otherwise entertaining.

After submissions close, the best stories will be chosen and published in a physical book. This project will be fully crowd-sourced and crowd-funded. A Kickstarter campaign is forthcoming. Entrants whose stories are selected for publication will receive $10 and a free copy of the final published book.
