…for novellas 20-40,000 words that “are not modeled on European cultures.”
Check out their submission guidelines for the whole 9 yards:
From October 12 at 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4:00) until January 12 at 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5:00), Tor.com will only be considering novellas of between 20,000 and 40,000 words that fit the epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, high fantasy, or quest fantasy genres, whether set on Earth or on an original fantasy world. However, we will only be considering novellas that inhabit worlds that are not modeled on European cultures. We are seeking worlds that take their influences from Africa, Asia, the indigenous Americas, or any diasporic culture from one of those sources. To qualify, novellas should center the experiences of characters from non-European-inspired cultures.
If you’re like me and you write fantasy based on non-European cultures… girl, what are you waiting for? The submission period will be open for 3 months (possibly extended…!), which is hopefully enough time for me to pull my WIP together!
Which WIP, you might ask? Definitely not my behemoth Iron Queen. Haha, no.
I’m scheming about how I can hack 40k from Fang and rewrite it as a tightly-paced novella. My brain has been whirring a million miles a minute since Tor.com announce their call for submissions and even if I don’t end up submitting Fang, I think the ms will be better for all the editing havoc I’m about to wreck on it!
Anyway, here’s the link again! Please go check out Tor.com’s call for submissions if you write fantasy set in anything other than lala-SarahJMaas-white-ppl-land.
Submit, submit, submit!
I’ll be drowning in reading until the weekend, so catch ya later…
