Fighting Monkey Press is seeking submissions from writers who want to earn royalties for short stories. The editor wants to see short stories that relate to the beginning of something new and unique for their upcoming anthology â€śUncommon Originsâ€ť.
Stories should be under 10,000 words, although the editor may consider longer works.Â Stories can be about something on the grand scale of Gods or the more personal scope of the individual.
Stories within any genre are accepted, although any submissions that display elements of hatred or intolerance of any kind will not be accepted. The editor particularly encourages short stories with fantasy or magical realism elements incorporated into the plot.
The editor encourages submissions from international writers, although all submissions should be written in American English.
No reprints or simultaneous submissions will be accepted. There is a limit of two short story submissions per person for this anthology.
Submissions open on 1st January 2016 and close on 28th February 2016. Acceptances are scheduled to be sent out by 15th March.
Payment for accepted stories is via royalty share.
