Carnation Books Trans Lifeline Anthology
Deadline March 31 (must be received by this date). Carnation Books seeks short story submissions, 1,000-10,000 words, for an anthology to benefit Trans Lifeline, a a suicide prevention hotline for all people who identify as transgender or otherwise gender-nonconforming. Stories should be fanfiction for a work that is in the public domain; one or more of the characters must be transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, or otherwise gender nonconforming; and the story must address the gender identity of the character. Due to the sensitive nature of Trans Lifeline's work, no character deaths are permitted, including implied/"offscreen" character deaths and terminally ill characters. Original source material could be fairy tales, early film, folklore, art, mythology, and characters from oral story traditions around the world. See website for more guidelines and suggestions.
