Your story could be in our next publication! We are opening submissions for our next anthology about outcasts, and we want to see what you can do. We want stories that explore what connects us and what happens when we lose those connections. We want to see humanity from the outside looking in. Submissions open March 1, 2021!
We have a very special guest for this anthology! Our foreword will be written by none other than actor, director, and writer Dan Fogler of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Walking Dead, Fogler’s Fictions, and so many more amazing projects!
The complete anthology will be released in the fall of 2021, to all major markets in print and digital formats.
Word Count: 1,000 to 10,000 words
Submission Period: March 1, 2021 through March 31, 2021
Submission Cost: You may submit one story to this project for free! “Writer” level OWA members may submit up to three stories for consideration.
Content Guidelines: Stories must not exceed reasonable content for a PG-13 rating. Language, violence and sexual themes with a purpose are fine, however, gratuitous violence and graphic sexuality will not be accepted.
It is free to submit a story for consideration to this anthology. Writer members of the Ohio Writers’ Association may submit two additional stories for consideration.
