Realms of Fantasy: All Women Writers Issue

January 4th, 2010

Women In Fantasy issue announcement

Realms of Fantasy is planning a special themed issue for August 2011, the theme being women in fantasy. This theme will be addressed in all three departments of the magazine, i.e. nonfiction, art, and fiction. So we’re putting out the official word that we’re looking for submissions from the fiction writers out there.

1. For this issue the sign on the proverbial door says “girl writers only.” Sorry gents.
2. While being a woman submitting a fantasy piece to us is enough to get your manuscript considered for this issue, submissions dealing with gender, sexism, and other areas important to feminine speculative literature are particularly welcome.
3. If you’d like to have your story considered for this issue, stories should be postmarked no later than November 15th, 2010. This will provide enough time to find the right artists (ladies, of course) for the stories. I’ll provide periodic reminders about the submission deadline as we move along.

All right, that’s pretty much everything. If you have questions, please ask. We look forward to reading your submissions.

    I have a modern retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood” that I’d like to submit. It is called “Lucita.” Would you be interested in considering it?

    First off, I think this will be tons of fun :)

    I have a few questions about the submission itself. How long should these stories be? Is there a particular formatting guideline you’d prefer we use? And you mentioned postmarking the manuscript, would you prefer we mail the submissions instead of emailing them?

    Thank you very much :)

    Hi, thanks for the amazing tip! I just want to say that I really enjoy reading Deep Genre, so much so that I gave you all a blog award. You can pick it up here:

    I don’t see anything about guidelines either. I am probably missing it but could you point it out. How many words, type set, etc.
