Two fiction collections, each by one author, will be selected for Wordrunner’s Fall 2017 e-chapbooks, to be published in September and November, respectively. Stories by authors who receive Honorable Mentions will be considered for publication in the annual spring anthology.
Last day to submit July 31, 2017.
Stories may be flash or longer, from 500 up to 5,000 words each. Quality trumps word count.
Minimum of five stories and no more than 15 (if flash fiction). They need not be linked, but it would be a plus if they belong together for some reason, be it theme, location or character/s. Excerpts from novels will also be considered for these echapbooks.
Looking for fiction that is subtle in emotional complexity.
Submit your best work only. Each story should be original and compelling. No genre fiction, please, unless a story is good enough to transcend genre.
At least one-fourth of any collection should be previously unpublished.
