The Houston Writers Guild is currently accepting submissions for its fantasy anthology Tides of Impossibility. The deadline is Friday, August 1.
Submissions should be no longer than 8,000 words and should be sent to the editor, Kyle Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Russell asks that each submission includes the author’s name, pen name (if applicable), title, word count, and publication status (if it has been previously published or not). Previously published works will only be considered if the author is a member of HWG, SFWA, or HWA.
All submissions will be acknowledged with an email response, and acceptances and rejections are scheduled to go out by the end of September.
Payment is three contributor copies of the anthology.
Please note that only fantasy submission should be sent; no science fiction will be accepted. In addition, the editor is willing to consider more than one submission per author, especially in the case of flash fiction or poetry.
There should be no erotic content, and the format should follow the standard submission format as seen on the Shunn website. In addition, those interested in submitting can read Strange Horizon’s list of “Stories We’ve Seen Too Often” to avoid any traps. http://www.strangehorizons.com/guidelines/fiction-common.shtml
