We are finalizing a short story collection to be published this year in our first Anthology, and are very excited about the submissions received thus far. We have begun making our final selections for this unique collection, with the theme centering on Metamorphosis.
In this collection, the stories chronicle deep changes in at least one of the characters, where by a lesson, a journey, discoveries, the confluence of ideas, an accident or some other more esoteric circumstances the central character becomes more attuned to the inner and outer worlds than they were at the beginning. More than a coming-of-age or life crisis, it might be said each of these stories begins with a seed and opens into flower. Sometimes the flower could be said to continue the cycle back into the earth, but this is never for naught. Something always remains as a result of this evolutionary transmogrification that gives the reader something to consider, that perhaps wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
If you have a short tale of less than 20,000 words that you believe fits into this thought motif, please follow up through our Submissions portal. Deadline: April 30, 2016.
The Anthology Metamorphosis is scheduled for the Fall of 2016.
