We are currently running a Kickstarter for Do Not Go Quietly, an anthology of victory in defiance edited by Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner.

Resistance. Revolution. Standing up and demanding to have your space, your say, your right to be. From small acts of defiance to protests that shut down cities, Do Not Go Quietly is an anthology of science fiction and fantasy short stories about those who resist. Within this anthology, we will chronicle the fight for what is just and right, and what that means: from leading revolutions to the simple act of saying “No.”

As of this morning, the anthology is 60% funded with 17 days to go.

Head over to Kickstarter now to help us reach 100% funding and bring Do Not Go Quietly to life!

We have fantastic lineup of authors contributing stories that includes such writers as A. Merc Rustad, Rebecca Roanhorse, Maurice Broaddus, Nayad Monroe, Karin Lowachee, Brooke Bolander, John Hornor Jacobs, Laird Barron, Brian Keene, Cassandra Khaw, Sheree Renée Thomas, Catherynne M. Valente, Seanan McGuire, Fran Wilde, Rich Larson, Sarah Pinsker, Tal M. Klein, and J.F. Gonzalez (co-writing with Lesley Conner). But we're looking for more!

Submissions for Do Not Go Quietly officially opened once we passed 50% funding. You can find the online form to submit here.

Submission Guidelines:

1) Submit your work in Shunn Standard Manuscript Format.
2) Maximum word length is a firm 7,500 words. Anything more will be auto-rejected.
3) Payment for original fiction is $.06 per word up to 7,500 words. Minimum of $60.

We are looking for original work that has not be previously published. Stories should be about resistance and revolution set within the science fiction and fantasy genres. Resistance can be a small act of everyday defiance. And other times, resistance means massive movements that topple governments and become iconic historical moments. Either way, there is power in these acts. What your characters are resisting is up to you, the writer. The things we fight against, the inequality, abuse, and unjust treatment are personal, and each define an individual's life experience. Use your experiences, look at the world around you, and tell your story.
