Taking Submissions: Queens in Wonderland

August 31, 2023

Deadline: August 31st, 2023
Payment: $20
Theme: An LGBTQ+ Alice in Wonderland themed anthology

We’re opening the call for our newest anthology, Queens in Wonderland.

This is an LGBTQ+ Alice in Wonderland themed anthology, and we want want to see it all. Throw some of those iconic characters into space. Put them in an urban fantasy. We’d love to see a cyberpunk or decopunk (or any punk!) version. A classic Lewis Carroll version would be good too. Feel free to take any of the characters (don’t forget about the White Queen or the Dormouse) or use any of the world-building from the classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass and what Alice Found There you wish.

If you need more inspiration, consider these prompts:

  • It’s time for tea, but your main character’s running late

  • The Queen of Hearts has invited your character to a garden ball

  • The Mad Hatter is nowhere to be found

  • The White Knight is talking backwards and you need them to solve a mystery

  • Cheshire has appeared in an urban downtown, and is directing you down an alley


  • 1,500-5,000 word count

  • LGBTQ+

  • Nothing with gratuitous violence, rape, or abuse of animals/children

  • Cursing is fine, within reason

  • Romance and sex is fine within reason, but no erotica

  • Submissions close on Aug 31st


  • We will be paying $20 USD dollars upon signing of the contract and you’ll receive an e-book once publication is complete. Paperback contributor copies at cost plus $2.00 will be available too.
