Taking Submissions: Two For the Show
Deadline: November 15th, 2023
Payment: 1.5 cents per word
Theme: Stories that ‘rebel’ and also use two somehow. Two points of view, two locations, etc etc.
Note: Apologies for the late posting, this went live last month but we only ran across it today.
The theme for our second anthology is “Two For the Show”.
Two times the trouble. Two times the love. Two locations. Dual POVs. Dual time lines. We’re expecting things to get a little complicated this year, but we still want stories that excite us. Our goal is to introduce our readers to stories that could be mind bending, but also clear and easy to read.
A short, sweet and simple story is good too!
What we’re looking for:
All fiction genres
English language stories
Stories that REBEL in some way
Authentic artists who want to be paid for their work but aren’t in it for the money (We ARE paying, btw)
Super Short Stories (1,500 or less)
Short Stories (1,500 – 10k)
What we’re not looking for:
Previously published work, though we may make some exceptions. Please email our EIC to discuss details – Tiffany at RebellionLIT.com
AI generated content.
Non-Fiction. We’re not ready for that yet.
Fully erotic stories. Heavy petting is cool, but not too many details…
Poetry. We’re planning a full anthology for that. One moment, please!
Anything that can get you or us arrested.
Anything that is legal but will ruin our reputation.
We’re only accepting submissions from authors with mailing addresses in the United States at this time. No international submissions.
The publisher will contract for publishing rights. First rights are not required but preferred (contact our EIC for details about previously published work). Authors will receive no royalties for book sales but will receive a semi-pro rate (details here) for the contracting of your work as well as 2 copies of the anthology for personal use upon its release. All payments are made in US currency.
Pay rates are:
Prose: 1.5 cents per word
