Taking Submissions: The Rabbit Dies First

June 30, 2018

Deadline: June 30th, 2018
Payment: 1 cent/word and a contributor copy

The Rabbit Dies First

FurPlanet is pleased to invite writers of anthropomorphic fiction to submit to its upcoming anthology, The Rabbit Dies First. We are looking for stories of all genres: scifi, fantasy, horror, mystery, crime, romance, or slice of life — to name a few — all centered around two concepts: the rabbit is going to die, and someone else is next.

But I don’t want to kill a rabbit!
Then don’t! Maybe the rabbit knows the rabbit is supposed to die first. Maybe everyone only expects the rabbit to die. Maybe death isn’t what it seems. We encourage you to play with the concept, rebel against it, or adhere to it–whatever makes a great story.

Seriously, what genre? Is erotic fiction okay?
Erotic fiction is okay as long as it contributes to a good story. We’re looking for a balanced anthology with many different genre types, so give us the type of story you love to write the most, or take this opportunity to try a genre you’ve always wanted to write in. We want to put out a book full of stories that are fun, gripping, heartbreaking, suspenseful, sweet, sexy, terrifying, and any combination. Want to write a prison drama or a high seas adventure? Send it to us! Just remember: The Rabbit Dies First.

Is there anything you don’t want?
[Editor’s Note: This market has specific guidelines for things they do not want to see. Please click on the link at the bottom of this post for all the details and follow their guidelines: it’s the polite and respectful thing to do. Also, it will help those submitting avoid being rejected on anything other than the quality of their work.]
We also do not want stories with only humans and no anthropomorphic animals. We do welcome and will be looking for diverse voices.
