Mythical Girls: submissions CLosed

 

Because I like to credit artists here’s a link to Jessica A. M. ‘s twitter: https://twitter.com/my2k/status/904826123783086080

You may remember a year or so back a girl found ‘Excalibur’ in Britain, in Dozmary Pool (where the Lady of the Lake lives), you may also remember a few months ago, another girl found a sword in Norway, which immediately made me think of Sigmund’s sword Gramr. This all got me wondering what other mythic weapons might be out there. Turns out there are a lot. So of course I had to wonder what happened if girls around the globe started finding these magical weapons.

I tossed out the idea to a couple of forums and got a huge response. So of course those stories have to be written. This is where you come in.

I’m looking for stories about those girls.

Each contributor will get an author’s copy, and the right to order addition books at cost plus shipping. I plan on running a kickstarter campaign to raise money to pay for the stories, but there will also be costs for proof-reading and cover design. Supporting the kickstarter will make no difference in how I read the stories.

The deadline for submission is August 1, 2019. I will contact the people selected for the anthology after December 31st. My goal is a tentative publication date of June 1, 2020.

For the anthology I will be asking for first publication rights, and exclusive rights for one year from the publication date. After that you can publish your work somewhere else.

  1. I just wanted to make sure, but these stories are modern day girls finding artifacts, right? Can a bit magic be involved, especially if said weapon/item has magic associated with it? Thanks!

    1. Sure, magic can be involved. The original idea was ‘urban fantasy’ but some people have written fantasy in non-contemporary settings. I’m leaving it pretty wide open.
