Ylva Publishing has an open call for lesbian fiction for their upcoming Halloween-themed antho:
"Werewolves, vampires, ghosts, fairies, djinns, goblins, trolls, witches, brownies, banshees—beings that are not of this world. Or maybe they are.I love Halloween, and I love stories about supernatural beings. I’m a publisher. We had a blast doing Halloween anthologies in the past two years. So why not combine my love for both and publish another anthology in October 2015 with stories that involve Halloween in one way or another? Yes, let’s do that. Let’s put out a submission call and let’s do it again.
Here you go:
We are looking for lesbian fiction. That hasn’t changed. All submissions must have either Halloween or supernatural beings as the main theme. The stories can be romantic, humorous, enthralling, spooky or erotic.We accept only short stories that haven’t been previously published.
We are looking for stories between 4,000 and 10,000 words in length.
Writers whose stories are selected for the anthology will receive a one-time payment of $40 (via PayPal) plus a free e-book of the anthology in each format (epub, mobi, pdf).
The deadline to receive submissions is May 31, 2015.
Electronic submissions only. Please send your story as an e-mail attachment (.doc, .docx, or .rtf) to email@example.com. Put “Halloween Anthology” in the subject line of your e-mail. In the body of your e-mail, please include your name, the title and word count of your story, and a two-or-three-sentence summary of your story.
It will take our editors about three weeks to review your submission; then we’ll get back to you.
We are looking forward to receiving your stories."
