UTOPiAcon 2016 Short Story Anthology Open for Submissions

Happy Tuesday! Yes, I know I missed my post yesterday. Funny thing about life, eh? You can't plan for everything. *grin* Anywhoooooo, that's not important! Stay with me here. Today, we're talking about a great opportunity for all you writers out there.

Ever wanted to be part of an anthology?

How about a revolution themed one?

Well, now's your chance! Here are the details:

1. a forcible change of a government or social order, in favor of a new system. synonyms: rebellion, uprising.

London-based ebook and paperback publisher, Little Bird Publishing House, has partnered with #UTOPiA2016 on a short story anthology contest, with proceeds benefiting Help Build A Library in South Africa, an organization that donates young adult books to schools and supports mentorships for aspiring young writers.

The upper young adult/new adult, revolution-themed anthology contest launched today. Writers can submit the first 1,000 words (of their up to 11,000-word short story). The submission window is open until Friday, December 11, 2015. The public votes on their favorites until mid-January, and the eight submissions with the most votes will be announced the winners on January 22, 2016, and will be included in the anthology titled #FightForYourWrite, as well as receive their own complimentary copy of it. One grand prize winner receives complimentary Titanium-level admission to #UTOPiA2016, and has the opportunity to get a future work published by LBPH.

More details can be found on the UTOPiAcon website here.
