NOW OPEN: call for prose of 500-3000 words on the theme of "running away" for a new anthology edited by Hannah Grieco (March 28th, 2022 - May 9th)
Ever wish, with every cell in your body, that you could run away? From home, from a person, from your job, from yourself? Physically or emotionally, on foot or purely in your own mind?
We want you to write about this for an anthology we’ll be publishing in the summer of 2023.
We’re looking for short prose—fiction or creative nonfiction—that explores the need to leave, to escape, to run. We love a speculative slant, whatever that means to you. It can mean the strange or surreal. It can mean horror or fantasy. It can simply mean it’s not what you’re supposed to wish for. We're flexible. Just keep it between 500-3000 words.
We are extremely interested in publishing pieces from BIPOC and LGBTQIA perspectives.
You must be at least 18 to submit.
All work must be the author’s own, in English or accompanied by an English translation. Single pieces by multiple authors considered.
Previously published work will not be given top consideration, but it isn’t a deal-breaker. Please be very clear about your piece being previously published if you decide to go that route!
You may submit 1-3 flash fiction pieces (just keep the total count under 3000 words) or one short story up to 3000 words. Please only submit once during the submission period.
Submit only through our Submittable link, which will open on March 28th, 2022 and close on May 9th. There is no cost to submit!
Payment per author: $30 & 2 print copies of the anthology.
All ASP titles are distributed internationally by Independent Publishers Group.
