Taking Submissions: Classics ReMixed II

August 30, 2019

Deadline: August 30th, 2019 Payment: $25 Left Hand Publishers is announcing their call for submissions for their next anthology: “Classics ReMixed II.” It’s going to be a collection of short stories based on classics. This is a second volume of our popular Classics ReMixed anthology. Take a classic story, character, or theme of your choice (of any type) and reimagine it.

Word count is 4,000 to 10,000 words. Submissions begin: Friday, July 26th, 2019, 12:00 a.m. EST Submissions close: Friday, August 30th, 2019, 5:00 p.m. EST. Notice of acceptance or declination will be emailed approximately: Friday, September 27th, 2019 COPYRIGHTS The trick is to make the story or characters recognizable WITHOUT violating copyright law.

If you submit a really good story but it dances all over copyright issues, we may send it back with a note regarding same. Left Hand Publishers reserves the right to decline any short story that could infringe on copyright law and have legal ramifications. TWIST OR MORAL All short stories submitted MUST have a twist or a moral somewhere in the story, preferably at the end.
