Writer friends and followers:
While there are a host of magazines and collections that often solicit submissions, two recent options caught my eye.
ApparitionLit runs a quarterly open solicitation for submissions of poetry and short fiction, with some appropriately thrilling or mysterious theme. This quarter is “delusion,” but unfortunately, the session is about to close (Feb 28th).
They’re accepting works with a theme of vision from May 15-31, and submission guidelines can be found here.
Since I’ve been focused on preparing my own submission, I failed as a blogger and provided those links far too late for anyone else to benefit. To make up for this heinous misdeed, here is another opportunity for short story submissions:
Rachel Ritchey is organizing a short story contest for adventure fantasy and sci-fi pieces as part of an anthology to raise money for charity. The inspiration for this piece is a cover picture provided with the submission details at the link above.
This contest just opened up today (Feb 26th) and runs until March 16th.
Now my guilty conscience is (somewhat) appeased, and I can get back to working on my own pieces.
