MENIAL: Skilled Labor in SF submissions – 1.5 months to go!Apr 15th, 2012 | By Bart Leib | Category: CG Blog
We’re accepting submissions to our upcoming anthology Menial: Skilled Labor in SF for 45 more days:
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.!
2000-8000 words (firm), Science Fiction (no Fantasy). For complete guidelines & to submit, go here. You have until the end of May!
