Here’s an interesting call for submissions:
Art from Art Anthology
This collection of short fiction by literary writers aims to feature stories that are connected directly to—or inspired by—a work of art. It could be a song, a painting, a museum, an architectural monument, a blueprint, a piece of writing—a play, novel, poem, letter, etc. The art in question needs to be a major component of the story—a character—within the fabric of the story. Perhaps the idea will be inspired by an event from life or maybe it will be something completely fabricated.
All genres welcome. ART from ART will bring new and established voices and ideas to a fine collection of fiction. I aim to have the art featured on a page either at the beginning or the end of each story—a visual correlative that will enhance the experience. Please follow standard submission guidelines (Microsoft Word Document with 12-point font).
Payscale for this project is $100 for the right to publish each author’s story in the anthology, and two copies of the finished book. I’m finding that stories between 2000-5000 words are working best. I’m really looking for a story with a completely developed narrative and with finely drawn characters. I’m not looking for a brief 2-page piece, and I’m not open to poetry at this time.
PLEASE MAIL ME A HARD-COPY VERSION OF YOUR STORY, WITH YOUR BRIEF BIO, TO
1733 N OGDEN DRIVE
LOS ANGELES, CA 90046
IF I FIND YOUR STORY A MATCH, I WILL E-MAIL YOU, ASKING FOR AN ELECTRONIC VERSION. THANK YOU!!
