The small press Mischief Corner Books is announcing this weekend they are opening up their first call for submission. What I liked best when I read this over was there doesn't have to be sex, it doesn't have to have and HEA/HFN ending. The call is for 10k or less, and for someone like me, who can't write a short story to save my life, will have a little difficulty meeting such a small word count. But I hear all the time how publishers ask for sex or won't take a tragedy, and depending on the length, this could be a good fit. It's worth a look. :)
Mischief Corner Books is putting out a call for LGBTQ short stories 10K and under. Stand alone stories only (universe stories welcome). This is truly a LGBTQ call. We want well written, solid fiction short stories featuring all kinds of LGBTQ characters to share with readers. *Erotic content will be accepted but is not a requirement. Neither are HEA/HFNs. Stories will be paid per word at the time of contract (per industry standard), and released quarterly as a bundle.
Ongoing. First release Spring 2015.
