Ticonderoga Press is looking for speculative fiction stories featuring strong women:
This anthology, with the working title Hear Me Roar, is looking at kick-arse chicks of all varieties in a speculative fiction world – female superheroes, scientists, subversives and rulers. We want character-driven stories with strong female protagonists.
The stories can be any variety of speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy, horror, paranormal romance, urban fantasy or a mix.
We are not looking for stories where women are objectified, where there is gratuitous gore or erotica.
They’re after stories from 2,500 to 7,500 words, and paying 2 contributor copies and 2.5 Australian cents per word, up to$187.50. Stories are due November 5, 2014.
