Comics essays anthology
Have a 2,500-to-5,000-word essay on comics, superhero films, fan culture, or related fields? Black Ship Books is seeking submissions from comics journalists, academics, and pop culture pundits for a collection of articles to be published digitally and by print-on-demand later this year.
Submissions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a brief summary of your essay and mention of any past publications.
Deadline: October 31, 2018 (provisional)
Utopian societies anthology
Black Ship Books is seeking short stories of up to 10,000 words that explore utopiansocieties, past, present, future, or of another world entirely. The theme may be interpreted broadly, but preference will be given to stories that imagine alternate worlds that differ from our own in ways particularly relevant, obliquely or directly, to the current crisis in American democracy.
Submissions should be directed to email@example.com. Please include a brief summary of your story and mention of any past publications.
Pay is 1 cent per word plus proportional royalties on the finished anthology.
Deadline: September 30, 2018 (provisional)
