“Winter Magic” anthology now open to submissions

We are currently open to submissions for our first anthology, Winter Magic.   We are looking for short stories, pieces of flash fiction and poems that reflect our anthology’s title, ones that utilise both concepts of ‘winter’ and ‘magic’, but how you interpret them is up to you.

There are so many ways you can run with this theme.  A story about winter on another planet.  A tale telling of rites and rituals performed in the winter of a fictional world, or perhaps in the past.  Poems that explore the thoughts, feelings or memories of the season or how the season can be construed as magical.  A story or poem inspired by Christmas or the Winter Solstice.  What about a winter romance?  Or a horror story that uses the darker side to the season?  A robot’s winter of discontent.  An enchanting tale about the season of death…

Fairytale, folklore, historical, mythological, alternate history, magical realism, fantastical or futuristic, romantic or scary, thriller or mystery, inspired by the paranormal or by nature itself…as long as it fits our theme, we want to read it.

If you want to learn more about this anthology, check out our submission guidelines.  And don’t forget, submissions close 17th November 2016.  Deadline extended to 24 November 2016

We can’t wait to read what you’ve come up with!
