We are excited to announce that submissions for our first anthology, A Mythos Grimmly, are open!
This anthology will be made up of mash-up stories, combining Fairy Tales (Bros. Grimm and more!) and Lovecraftian Mythos tales. Little Red Riding Cthulhu? Maybe, we’ll have to wait and see what the authors come up with! Cultural tales are welcome from all over the world.
We are accepting submissions now through May 1st, 2014. Stories should be between 3,000 and 7,000 words long. Contributors will be announced by May 8th, 2014. Publication of the anthology is expected to be before or by December, 2014.
This anthology is being funded by a Kickstarter campaign, which will run in May, 2014. Monetary payment for accepted works will be sent out within 30 days of a successful Kickstarter. Accepted authors will receive $100 and a copy of the Kickstarter trade paperback of the book (within 90 days of publication), which is available through the Kickstarter campaign only.
A short biography and author portrait will be requested upon acceptance of the story.
Please take time to edit and proofread your work. While some editing will take place before heading to the press, submissions that have an abundance of grammatical errors, misspellings, or formatting will be excluded from the review process. Submissions that are accepted must be open for minor editorial corrections.
We are looking for original works for this anthology, no reprints.
Please submit your works to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1st, 2014. Wanderer’s Haven requests first worldwide publishing rights for one year after publication of the anthology.
