Cancer Can Bite It - Cancer Charity Anthology
Everyone has been touched by cancer – whether it's you personally, a family member, or friend. Cancer is not a ribbon, not a color, not a promotional "cause" – it's real and it sucks on so many levels. This is way to, hopefully, make it suck a little less.
We are now open for submissions for a CHARITY anthology benefitting the Cancer Support Community of North Texas. This is an UNPAID anthology with proceeds going directly to charity – this will primarily be ebook with the possibility of hardcopy. The only "costs" will be doing any print copies through someone like CreateSpace.
What we're looking for – short stories, essays, and/or artwork of any subject — cancer does not have to be the focus. We mostly come from a shared Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror background – but your story or art can be in any genre – just please no fan fiction or fan art. Original work only.
REPRINTS will be accepted – just let us know where it originally ran.
This will be a non-exclusive First Serial Rights.
DEADLINE: April 30, 2018
Word length – 8,000 words MAX
Please send your story in 12pt Times New Roman
1 – 1.5" margins all around, DOUBLE SPACED
