The Kickstarter for the Glitter & Mayhem anthology has been funded! Almost $16,000 was raised during the course of the Kickstarter project. The extra funds will go toward additional author/artist payments, so say the editors.
Apex wishes to congratulate Glitter & Mayhem editors Lynne M. Thomas, Michael D. Thomas, and John Klima. We look forward to bringing this crazy anthology to our readers!
Writers, take notice! The anthology is officially accepting submissions.
Glitter & Mayhem: The Speculative Nightclub Anthology is looking for a few glamorous stories.
As you know, we’ve got fabulous work from amazing writers like Alan DeNiro, Amal El-Mohtar, Daryl Gregory, Damien Walters Grintalis, Maria Dahvana Headley, Kat Howard, Vylar Kaftan, Seanan McGuire, Jennifer Pelland, Tim Pratt, Cat Rambo, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Diana Rowland, Sofia Samatar, David J. Schwartz, William Shunn, and Rachel Swirsky.
But what about you? You’re glamorous, right? We bet you have a dazzling idea for a story, don’t you? You probably even know the prompt by heart:
Roller Derby, nightclubs, glam aliens, (literal) party monsters, drugs, sex, glitter, debauchery, etc.
Here’s the details you’ve been waiting for:
* The max word limit is 6000 with a deadline of March 15.
* We’re paying $.05 per word.
* You’ll have the chance to be edited by Hugo Award-winning editors and be in a ToC with awesome authors (see above).
We expect stories to follow standard manuscript format. We expect that the your name and contact info is on the first page of your submission. Please send only one submission at a time. If you can refrain—mostly due to the extremely short reading period—please do not query about your submission.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
We can’t wait to see what you create. Surprise us. Amaze us. Dazzle us.
