Open Markets For Speculative Fiction Writers | Top Open Calls November 27th-Dec 1st, 2023

Welcome, weavers of the mystical and the macabre! 🍂🌙 As we transition from the fading whispers of November into the early chills of December, spanning from the 27th of November to the 1st of December, let us draw inspiration from the enchanting prose of Alice Hoffman. In your hands, the ordinary becomes steeped in an aura of wonder and the shadows dance with an unseen life, much like the subtle magic that permeates Hoffman’s narratives.

This week’s collection of opportunities opens doorways to realms where the lines between the real and the surreal blur, each link a portal to unexplored territories that beckon your unique voice.

As we bid farewell to November and usher in December, let’s embrace a curious fact: Did you know that in many ancient calendars, December marked the end of the year? It was a time of finishing old business and preparing for the new, much like writing a story where every end is also a beginning, an echo of possibilities yet to come.

In the spirit of notable authors, let us remember C.S. Lewis, born on November 29th, whose works continue to inspire a sense of awe and wonder in the realms of fantasy and speculative fiction.

“Books may well be the only true magic,” Alice Hoffman once said. As you craft your narratives, let your words be the spell that transforms the mundane into the extraordinary, the prose that weaves reality with the threads of the fantastical.

In this time of transition, where the remnants of autumnal magic give way to the stark beauty of winter, let your tales capture the essence of change and the profound mysteries that lie within. May your writing resonate with the quiet power of transformation, casting a spell over readers that lingers long after the page is turned.
