Submissions call – WINTER WELL: Speculative Novellas of Older Women

Mar 26th, 2012 | By | Category: News & Announcements

Crossed Genres has opened a new submission call for an upcoming anthology of speculative novellas!

We’re looking for speculative stories featuring women of advancing age (late middle age and older). They’re smart, they’re tough, and they have wills of their own.

They may be warriors, politicians, adventurers, etc. Even if they are also wives, mothers, wise women or healers, those archetypes must not be their defining characteristics. Their motivations, their driving force, must be their own. Whatever was in their past, they’re not interested in being in the background now.

We want stories about women breaking free of suppression; we also want stories of women who’ve been empowered all their lives.

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

Submissions close September 30, 2012. For more information and to submit, visit the WINTER WELL submission page.
