Submissions are now open for an anthology of original speculative fiction stories aimed at the 9-13 year old market.
With a working title of “Spec Fic for Kids”, the aim for this anthology is to collect excellent stories by Australian authors (to be illustrated by Australian artists) into a work that not only stands as a book of enjoyable reading, but one that will also be marketed to schools, with an accompanying website offering free downloadable resources to utilise with each story in the classroom.
The anthology (and accompanying website) is aimed at a Worldcon 2010 launch.
Editor Tehani Wessely is seeking story submissions BY AUSTRALIAN AUTHORS between 1000 to 3500 words, in any of the speculative fiction subgenres, by July 31st, 2009.
Artists and teachers are also invited to express interest in collaborating on the project.
Minimum payment will be AUD$50.00 plus contributor copy.
