However we didn’t get a vast number of stories so we shelved the idea of an anthology. But it’s still a good idea, so we’ve reopened the call out
The CALL OUT:
Stories or poems, which can either be to the general theme of Liberty, or can address a specific clause of the Magna Carta. Find out what they are here. There are plenty of weird ones to play with as well as the more obvious.
- We do NOT want stories about the opposites of Liberty, it’s a celebration, so no matter how tempted you are by dwelling on the iniquity of false imprisonment, restrain yourself. Light & Shade, you know?
- Story Length: 800-2000 words.
- any fiction genre (except erotica or horror. We don’t publish it and don’t want to read it), although we’d enjoy some convincing historical stuff.
- Yes, it can be a poem. (hello Kate).
- No, it can’t be an essay, memoir or other non-fiction.
- Your own original work, UNPUBLISHED* and in English please. Submissions welcome from anywhere in the world.
*If it has been performed that may be ok, also if it is out of print, so long as you retain the rights.
Deadline 21st December 2015.
