Taking Submissions: NeaDNAthal

July 20, 2013

Deadline: July 20th 2013
Payment: 4% royalties after cost per story published

Fringeworks works hard to come up with appealing anthologies that stand out from the crowd. We are currently seeking submissions for an anthology entitled ‘NeaDNAthal’.

Submission deadline for this anthology is midnight on Monday, 20th July 2013.

As the title suggests, we are looking for stories which involve the reappearance of Neanderthal Man in the modern age. A sort of Jurassic Park for cavemen. NeaDNAthal is specifically geared to attracting Science Fiction (SF) stories between 2,500 and 6,000 words in length.

Stories can be contemporary, set in the recent past (as far back as the Victorian age), or set any time in the future. They should revolve around the return of Neanderthal man, possibly by DNA recreation, and should take account of the impact such a reappearance may have, either upon the neanderthals, society, or both.

We are looking for new and original stories with surprising elements. Be clever but most of all be unique. We expect this anthology will appeal to writers of Science Fiction.

Submissions should be sent to [email protected] as word documents or rtf files.

Your email subject header should read ‘SURNAME/DNA/WORD COUNT (include word count)

All submissions should;

Be 2,500 to 6,000 words (max)

Be typed in Courier or Times New Roman 12

Be typed in line with Standard Manuscript Format. Details can be found at http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

Include your full details (name/address/telephone number/email address)

Previously published stories will be considered for this anthology. Authors will retain copyright.

Multiple submissions up to a maximum of two stories per author can be submitted.

We will write to you within approximately four weeks of the submission deadline to let you know if you have been successful.

We will pay 4% royalties after cost per story published
