THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR NWU HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JANUARY 31, 2019!
YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO BRING US MORE AWESOME SHORT STORIES! PLEASE REVIEW THE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES, AS THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CLARIFICATIONS.
ALSO: WHY ARE WE SHOUTING??? BECAUSE WE’RE REALLY EXCITED!!!
Just to be super clear, if the protagonist does not represent the identities stated in our submission guidelines (disabled, Deaf, blind, neurodiverse, Spoonie, and/or someone who manages mental illness), we’ll reject the story. (There’ve been way too many stories about us as side characters.)
Send us your genres! We want genres! Fantasy, romance, steampunk, paranormal, magical cool stuff . . . with main characters who don’t give into the tropes that make us cringe.
We’ve received some amazing stories so far and thought we’d give our writers an extension to submit because the holidays can sometimes be a very busy time.
So, you have a few extra weeks to polish up your stories!
We wish you all the best and thank you for supporting this anthology! It’s been wonderful to read the submissions and to discover your enthusiasm for our project! Means a lot to us!
