Call for submissions:  THE CORONA CHRONICLES!

This anthology of long stories from 5,000 to 15,000 words focusing on the COVID-19 Pandemic. Works need not be about the pandemic per se but should include it as a factor in the story--an antagonist, at least an unwelcome guest. We encourage speculative, hyperbole, ghost stories, post-apocalyptic works, “Love In The Time of Cholera” stories, A Diary of the Plague Years stories, war stories, survival narratives, high drama, humor—traditional, quirky! We’ll consider anything as long as it’s well-crafted. Excellence is the single criteria.
This project grew out of a challenge put out on social media and elsewhere in March by fiction editor William Luvaas to write a novella centered on the COVID19 quarantine. He had in mind the challenge Mary Shelley, Percy B. Shelley, Lord Byron posed to each other during a time they were shut inside by foul weather: to write the best horror story. Out of this grew Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein. We look for stories with strong narratives and characterizations. No rants or diatribes please. Long short stories, novellas and free-standing excerpts from novels or novellas considered. Unpublished works only. Submit between November 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020. No mail-in or email submissions. To submit, go Submissions and click on link at bottom of the page.

There is a $3.00 submission fee to help fund this project.
