Book review blog and digital-first publisher Book Smugglers (est. 2008) has issued an open call for submissions to find the best original speculative fiction short stories based on the theme of “GODS AND MONSTERS.” Founders and publishers Thea James and Ana Grilo plan to publish a minimum of three stories, connected to the main theme, between May and August 2017. Original artwork by a commissioned illustrator will supplement each story.
Writers are encouraged to inject their creativity into the Gods and Monsters theme and create a story that excites and inspires them. It can be Gods VERSUS Monsters, or Gods but not Monsters, or Monsters without Gods. Writers may overturn these sample themes, embellish upon what “gods and/or monsters” represents, and fine-tune the concept to other plausible nuances and genres under the Speculative Fiction genre.
Tomorrow (February 26th) many fabulous agents and editors will be taking to Twitter #MSWL to put out their current manuscript wish lists. So, check it out. If you can’t be on tomorrow or want more information on this event check out Agent and Editor Wish List on Tumblr. They’ve got the rules and they’ll be compiling the tweets.
Good luck authors and agents, hopefully someone will be seeking your manuscript!
