MENIAL: Skilled Labor in SF – submission deadline extended through June

May 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: News & Announcements

The deadline for submissions to CGP’s upcoming anthology MENIAL: Skilled Labor in Science Fiction has been extended a month. The deadline for sending submissions is now June 30.

Other people treat laborers like the dirt they work with. But skilled labor is crucial to the continuation of human culture on earth – and if we ever wish to visit the stars, skilled labor will be indispensable.

We want stories about men and women who understand the nuts and bolts, the atmosphere and the water and the soil. You know – the things that keep us alive. We want characters who get their hands dirty every day; people who aren’t too proud to work their bodies at least as hard as their minds.

We welcome and strongly encourage submissions with underrepresented main characters: characters of color, LGBTQ characters, women characters, etc.!

We decided to extend the deadline largely because of the surprising success of our Kickstarter, which saved Menial (and the rest of our 2013 projects) in one day! We want to ensure that as many people as possible can get their submissions in, so Menial turns out even more awesome! =)

Submission guidelines for Menial are here. If you have a story idea but didn’t think you had time, now you have no excuse! Send us your stories!
