A Call For Submissions "Between The Lines" Submission Deadline: December 31, 2021
Writers of Every Age, Stage, and (nearly) Every Genre Are Welcome To Submit!
THE PROMPT: Writers, we want you to write a short story that imagines what might happen if a character from a book somehow unlocked a way to communicate directly with the reader, but only when the book's covers are open. What would they say to each other? How might their interaction effect the story? What can be discovered when you read Between The Lines?
Writers are encouraged to choose a genre that most interests them... perhaps that is horror or romance, comedy or science fiction, fantasy, or action/adventure... perhaps it's a creative combination of several different genres... wherever your muse takes you, we give writers nearly free reign to imagine worlds, craft characters and build plots that surprise and delight, mystify and excite, or trouble and entertain in new and different ways.
You might even want to use a book you've already written as the foundation for this prompt (a great way to draw attention to established authors' previously published works).
Or, ask an author whose work you admire, if you can have permission to create a "fan fiction" of their work for this project. Some Indie Authors, especially, may be delighted to see how you might re-imagine an aspect of their novel.
Submissions are now being accepted from writers of every age, stage and (nearly) every genre for Between The Lines. This anthology is intended as a collection of short stories, only. Poetry and essays will not be accepted.
THE RULES:There are only three rules: write within the prompt; keep your submission rated PG; and don't exceed 8,000 words. Flash fiction pieces are acceptable, but Erotica submissions will not be accepted.
We encourage young writers to submit their work, as well, and therefore, we must ask that all submissions are "family-friendly" in genre, situation, and language content. If minor children would like to submit a story, a parent or guardian must complete the submission form.
The submission deadline is December 31, 2021. The anticipated release date is March 1, 2022. NOTICE: To avoid copyright issues, please be sure that the foundation you are using to write your submission meets one of these three criteria:
A re-imagining of a work that is in the public domain (author is responsible for verification and any violation consequences).
Permission has been gifted from the original creator of the story or characters that you are using as your foundation (author is responsible for verification and any violation consequences).
Your submission is a 100% original writing.
The Submission Deadline for this anthology is December 31, 2021.
