Taking Submissions: Maleficence An Anthology of Queer Disabled Villainy

Deadline: February 29th, 2024
Payment: $15 + Contributor’s Copy
Theme: An anthology where queer disabled villains take the stage.

An anthology where disabled villains take the stage. Vampires in wheelchairs, necromancers with IBS, blind enchanters–we want it all. We want them visibly queer and irredeemably rotten. 

This is not a space for ableist language or themes. We are going to showcase the very dastardliest of villains who are also disabled, not villains who are evil because of or “in spite of” their disabilities.
