Group-Sponsored YA Authors’ Contest: LUST
|Deadline:||Sep 14, 2018|
The YA Authors’ Group is putting together a series anthology to showcase its members. Proceeds from the anthologies are donated to the charity First Book. The series revolves around the Seven Deadly Sins and each volume focuses on one of the sins. The first six volumes can be found on Amazon in eBook and print formats:
The seventh, and final, volume in this series is LUST. It’s slated for worldwide publication with an anticipated release date of January 9, 2019.
Submissions must be a complete short story or flash fiction between 1,500 and 3,000 words and must be reflective of the anthology’s theme: LUST. The piece must be a young adult piece, but can be any genre (romance, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, etc.).
Only previously unpublished/un-submitted work will be considered. If a story is accepted, the writer retains all copyrights but grants exclusive publishing rights for six months after the anthology's publication. Edits may be requested of the winners, and the authors must agree to work with the standing acceptance committee.
In addition to the below prizes, several Honorable Mentions will also be selected for publication in the anthology.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
