Anthology Call:

Fairy Tale Transformations Anthology

Submission Period: July 27 - September 27
[Title to be announced]

Word Count:    500-10,500 (If over this, please ask before submitting).

Theme:     Many fairy tales have some kind of transformation in it, be it physical or emotional. A peasant turns into a princess, a frog a prince, an old hag a beautiful enchantress, or vice versa. Maybe a once selfish princess learns a hard lesson and transforms into a queen to be proud of, or a naive girl has to grow up much too quickly. These are the stories we are looking for. We want to see stories focus on a character's transformation, whatever it may be. The transformation must take place to either the main character or someone very close to them that appears throughout the entire story. Submissions with a minor character transformation will not be accepted, we want this to be the focus. You may give a brief explanation of your character's transformation in your submission email (especially in cases of emotional transformations), but we would like it to be pretty self-evident.

We will consider any sub-genre, but the story must be fairy tale based/inspired.
No poetry.

Haunted Dolls Anthology

Submission Period: August 5 - October 5

Word Count:    500-10,500 (If over this, please ask before submitting).

Theme:     There are many different kinds of dolls, porcelain, ball joints, voodoo, toys. They have been around for hundreds of years and many legends have been created around them. Some people are fascinated with them, some obsessed, some have a mild distrust, and others have a paralyzing fear. What lurks behind those lifeless eyes? What is hidden in that painted smile? The carefully carved and crafted faces? The painstakingly sewn dresses? People throw their heart, souls, blood, and tears into making these dolls, each a piece of art. It is said when an artist makes something, they leave a piece of themselves in the art. We want to hear these stories. 

We will consider any sub-genre, but the story must involve a doll that is haunted or cursed in some way. It can be the origin of how it became cursed or of what happens to it once it falls into the hands of an unsuspecting owner or collector.
No poetry.
