Call for Submissions: Immersion: An Asian Anthology of Love, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction
Deadline: Open February 15, 2018 – December 31, 2018 (deadline extended from previous Oct deadline)
Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop and Dark Helix Press are collaborating! We are searching for submissions for “Immersion: Love, Fantasy, Science” an anthology of speculative fiction stories to be published in the summer of 2019.
The anthology editors are Allan Cho, (Inside the World’s Major East Asian Collections), JF Garrard (Trump: Utopia or Dystopia, The Undead Sorceress) and William Tham (Kings of Petaling Street).
Construct a story about an Asian main character set in an immersive alternate past, present or future. Fill this reality with hints of reality, magic, or fantastical but believable science. If you are interested in writing about a motorized caravan train across the Silk Road, or sages searching for magical apprentices in the South China Sea, now is your chance. We also like good wuxia swordplay and other martial arts as much as we enjoy postcolonial politics and other contemporary topics. Draw on your heritage and transport us to a different world.
We are collecting short stories and flash fiction; please make sure there is a beginning, middle and an end.
Stories may be dark in nature, but no gratuitous violence, sex, or racist content. Novel excerpts not encouraged unless they tell a complete story.
For more details on how to submit, visit Dark Helix Press’ website link.
Please read the instructions. Stray stories are hard to keep track of and do get lost no matter how good they are!
