Tweet of the Day: Writing Excuses 8.4: Side-Characters Arcs
I apologise for the lack of story today, working on something right now that is taking up quite a bit of my brain’s processing power. Will return to regular posting soon. In the mean time take a look at this:
The journey continues… World Weaver Press is looking for modern space adventures crafted in the Grand Tradition. We are not looking for slavish imitations of past classics. Rather, we would like to receive stories that establish a new tradition in the much maligned sci-fi adventure genera — smart, modern stories built around the classic traditions.
Rights and compensation: Payment: $0.01/word. All contributors will receive a paperback copy of the anthology. For previously unpublished works: Seeking first world rights in English and exclusive rights to publish in print and electronic format for twelve months after publication date after which publisher retains nonexclusive right to continue to publish for a fixed number of years. For reprints: Seeking non-exclusive right to publish in print and electronic formats for a fixed number of years. Previously unpublished stories preferred; Reprints will be considered. No previously anthologized stories.
Open submission period: January 1 – March 31, 2013.
Submission method: Email cover letter + story to FarOrbit[at]worldweaverpress.com with the subject line “Far Orbit - story title.” Cover letter should contain your name, contact info, story’s title, approximate word count, and where/when the story was previously published (if you’re seeking a reprint); no need to summarize the story, let it speak for itself. Then paste the full story into the body of the email following your letter. Please make it very clear where paragraphs break — this means if your email doesn’t let you indent paragraphs, you’ll need to put an extra space between each paragraph for submission purposes. Do not send unrequested attachments.
Simultaneous submissions = okay. Multiple submissions = no.
I’m thinking of sending at least one short for their consideration.
