Submission Call: Sci-fi and fantasy about women leaders - (Expired) Pays 2¢/word; due April 30

ical Google outlook Archive Calls for Submissions For Writers

Mad Scientist Journal is an online speculative fiction magazine that I love to read. It’s got some wonderfully weird fiction and unique storytelling.

Right now, Mad Scientist Journal is seeking short story submissions for a special Kickstarter-funded anthology, Battling in All Her Finery: Historical Accounts of Otherworldly Women Leaders. Each story must focus on a woman leader and be told in the first person by the leader or someone who has spent time around her. Please see the free-to-read stories on the Mad Scientist Journal website for an idea of the styles they prefer.

The editors write:

We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female,” and we welcome stories about anyone who identifies as a woman on some level. …

We are particularly looking for stories from authors who are underrepresented in fiction: people of color, LGBTQ, non-Western religions and cultures.
