There's ONE WEEK LEFT to submit to Small Loves: A Queer Microfiction Anthology! Do you have a very short story to share about LGBTQIA+ lives? Send it our way! We're also accepting poetry.

hybrid.ink/submit/anthologies/

If you'd still like to submit but feel like you would benefit from a short (~2wk) extension, please feel free to email the editor at madison@hybrid.ink with your idea.

Just a week and change to get your LGBTQIA+ flash and micro fiction in for Small Loves! The more we read, the more excited we get.

Just about three weeks left to submit to Small Loves: A Queer Microfiction Anthology! We're up above 55 submissions now, and looking for lots more.

We are looking for micro- and flash-fiction submissions that explore queer and minority identities

hybrid.ink/submit/anthologies/

According to the Furry Survey, 9% of the subculture describes itself as not cisgender, with a further 8% reporting "it's complicated". Unsurprising when it's so easy to choose how you interact with others!

What kinds of stories are there to be told?

After some further budgeting, we have redone our anthology rates for all anthologies other than Small Loves to 2½¢ per word with a maximum of $100 per story, up from a flat rate of $25 per story.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Future//Tense: Gender

An anthology of transfuturistic science-fiction. The stories within will explore the way gender, transition, and trans issues may change over time.

Wow! Is it the second already? Apologies for the delay in emails and in this post but there was so much going on around the new year!

Reminder that there's still one month left in the open call for Small Loves and two months left in the calls for Genderful and Acethetic!

Also…

Thanks to a kind soul, there is one Libro Sospeso of Jen Durbent's poetry collection, canon! If you're looking to pick up some poetry but are a bit strapped for cash, you can now grab it for free: hybrid.ink/libro-sospeso/canon

To learn more about Libri Sospesi, you can read about the program here: hybrid.ink/libro-sospeso/

What unique challenges to anthropomorphic characters face when it comes to transition? What is coming out like? How do hormones work? So many questions!

Genderful

We are looking for short story submissions that explore the implications of non-cisgender life within the context of furry.

Genderful

We clarified to add that there's no limit on nanofiction submissions, and that you can submit more than one per document (just still needs to be something we can download!)

... Could we have just said "think one toot"?

Yes. Yes we could.

This is what you get from copying from Twitter. Tooting before coffee is dangerous.

Additionally, we've lowered the lower-bound wordcount for Acethetic and Genderful from 5,000 words to 2,000 words.

CALL UPDATE

Small Loves is now accepting nanofiction submissions under 500 characters (think two tweets) to sprinkle between the larger works!

hybrid.ink/submit/anthologies/

We hope to open for long-form submissions in the near future, but would like to judge workload first. If you've got a novel or a book of creative non-fiction, keep us in mind in the new year!

Hybrid Ink is now open for queries for short story collections, essay collections, and poetry collections in addition to our open anthology calls!
