Call for submissions: Sword & Sorceress #28

The anthology Sword & Sorceress is open for submissions between April 13, 2013 and May 11, 2013. Here are their complete guidelines:

Sword & Sorceress Guidelines

“Stories should be the type generally referred to as “sword and sorcery” and must have a strong female protagonist whom the reader will care about. We do not want stories with explicit sex, gratuitous violence, or profanity. We are NOT a market for poetry. We are willing to consider stories set in modern times (urban fantasy), but we won’t buy more than one or two of those for the anthology. We always want something short and funny for the last story.

No reprints. No simultaneous submissions.”

Good luck to you!

Call for Submissions: Cancer Anthology

Many people are touched by cancer every day. It’s a terrible disease that has taken thousands of lives. I personally have family members who passed away due to cancer, and I have a lot of friends who went through the same thing. So, I was intrigued when I saw the call for submissions for an anthology based on cancer.

It’s an anthology edited by Rhonda Parish and published by Wolfsinger Publications. I immediately submitted a story and then I decided to write this post and share it with other people. So, here is the information:

They are looking for stories up to 7,500 words long and poems up to 40 lines long.

Please follow standard manuscript formatting when submitting (http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html) and send your submission to editor (at) wolfsingerpubs.com as an .rtf file.

Put ‘Cancer Submission – “the title of your submission” – your last name’ as the subject of your email.

No simultaneous submissions, please.

No reprints.

Payment is $10.00 advance with an equal share of 25% of royalties.

Deadline: June 30, 2013

Here is the official page for more information:

Good Luck!
