Afrocentric Books is taking submissions for a mythical fantasy anthology.
We want adult stories. No erotica, though some erotic or romance elements are acceptable. Magic, gods, mysticism, mythical creatures. Bring us old fairy tales with an Afrocentric twist. We are interested in new gods or ancient ones, old religions, houngans, potions, and spells. Your story can be adapted from African folklore or modern mythology. You aren’t restricted in your chosen setting, but priority will be given to stories featuring human characters who live in this world.
We want diverse characters in diverse settings, with a main character of indigenous African descent. Please read our general submission guidelines prior to submitting.
1,000-7,500 words, although we’ll consider pieces that fall outside those parameters on a case-by-case basis. Multiple and simultaneous submissions ok. No reprints.
If accepted, pay is 1 cent per word. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2017.
