Are you a BIPOC femme writer? Do you have a passion for writing romance, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and/or thriller? I'm looking for you!
I am so pleased to announce that Miss Read Books is officially accepting short story submissions for our new weekly blog series -- our mission is to not only introduce readers to new authors, but uplift authors who's voices deserve to be raised!
This is a PAID opportunity for up and coming authors to have your work published in the Miss Read Books weekly blog, as well as be published in a monthly digital zine distributed to Miss Read Books email subscribers at the end of every month. Please see the guidelines for submissions below:
GUIDELINES Word Limit: 2000 words MAX, no exceptions
Pay Rate: $.03 per word. Payment via PayPal.
Genres: Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Thriller
Language: English (Currently I am only accepting stories from authors based
in the US, translated works are acceptable & encouraged!)
Rights: We claim non-exclusive digital rights (text and audio) and two-
time non-exclusive anthology rights for our monthly Miss Read
Books zine collection, as well as the annual Miss Read Books
TO SUBMIT Please submit the below to email@example.com. It's just me, so while I try to respond to every submission, I will be prioritizing responses!
Name -- Email Address -- Cover Letter (Who are you? Why this story?) -- Story Title -- Word Count-- Genre--
And don't forget to ATTACH the file containing your story! (.DOC, or .DOCX format)
Best of luck, I'm looking forward to reading your submissions!***
***Please only submit ONE short story at a time -- as the sole owner/employee of this lil outfit, you have a much better opportunity of being read if I'm not spammed with multiple submissions from the same author!
