from Polis Books
Polis Books is looking for submissions for Both Sides – An Anthology of Border Noir. “The border is a powerful place where countries collide. It’s a weird space of dreams, struggles, promises, lies, fear, and redemption. It’s a multicultural and bilingual space where people know that hustling to protect your loved ones or offer them a better life is a drive strong enough to blur ethical codes. Send a short pitch of about 100 words. Then the short stories themselves should be 5,000–7,000 words. Pays $75.
Deadline: April 1, 2019, for your pitch. Then stories due by July 1. Guidelines here.
Pays $15 U.S.
Deadline: April 12, 2019. Guidelines here.
B Cubed Press is seeking fiction for an anthology: Tales from the Space Force.
“Now that America has an official Space Force, we need to incorporate it into literature. What to do we want? Camp? Satire? Bug Eyed Monsters? All good. We’ll do serious stories, too. Mostly we want good stories. And if I am to confess, we want campy stories. We want the golden age of pulp to live again. Ask yourself, what would an American Space Force do? Will there be a space wall around the International Space Station? Will NASA and the Space Force get along?”
Length: 500–5,000 words. Pays $0.02/word and royalties; for flash pieces and poetry, an option of a flat $25 fee.
Deadline: April 15, 2019. Guidelines here.
