Submission Call: Third Flatiron wants spec fic for “Hidden Histories” - (Expired) Due Jan. 31; pays 6¢/word

ical Google outlook Calls for Submissions For Writers

Third Flatiron releases quarterly speculative fiction anthologies centered on a predetermined theme. Submissions are open through Jan. 31 for its spring-summer 2019 anthology, Hidden Histories. The editors write:

 A secret history (or shadow history) is a revisionist interpretation of either fictional or real history which is claimed to have been deliberately suppressed, forgotten, or ignored by established scholars. Your tale can be based in the real world, past, present, or future, as long as it has a speculative fiction element. We’re not exactly looking for alternate history, but there can be a fork in the road timewise. We’d especially welcome stories about events or people who have been erased from history
