OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Power of the Zodiac

Some believe in the zodiac: the traits of the stars that being born in that period imprints on your soul, your character; the power of the elements; the attraction of one to another solely based on your ‘sign’. But does any of that really work?

Submissions should:
All stories should have one zodiac sign as the central theme; there can be more than one story for each zodiac sign: Aries March 21 – April 19, Taurus April 20 – May 20, Gemini May 21 – June 20, Cancer June 21 – July 22, Leo July 23 – August 22, Virgo August 23 – Sep 22, Libra Sep 23 – Oct 22, Scorpio Oct 23 – Nov 21, Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21, Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 19, Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18, Pisces Feb 19 – March 20

Suggestion for a site with a lot of information to start http://www.horoscope-zodiac-signs.com/

Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 50k

Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed.

Submissions should be sent to special_submissions@mlrpress.com

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 15, 2016, stories will release according to the dates of that zodiac sign starting in March of 2017 with Aries

Any questions can be sent to Kris Jacen at KrisJacen@mlrpress.com

 

Dreams…Daydreams…Nightmares…or fantasies?

What is it about our dreams that intrigues us? Not the dreams of the “perfect job” or “trip of a lifetime” but those dreams that we have as our brains are drifting…whether the drifting is in a warm, cozy bed at night or sitting in a boring business meeting or cuddled in front of a fire on a snowy day…whether the dream is pleasant or erotic or downright frightening. Those dreams that are just that…dreams or is it the reality?

Submissions should:
All stories should have a dream as a central part of the story

Suggestions: a businessman drifting during a meeting daydreaming about hooking up with a coworker and the dream becomes reality; a guy wakes from a nightmare that his partner dies on a trip and when he wakes it’s actually his reality and he needs to figure out how to move on and find happiness again; a little boy who dreams about meeting his one true love, he has the dream repeatedly as he grows up and then when he is a grown man the dream turns into reality but maybe the man of his dreams isn’t everything he seems (could be sci-fi/alien, or a paranormal)

Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 50k

Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed.

Submissions should be sent to special_submissions@mlrpress.com

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 30, 2016, stories will release during the first quarter of 2017
