Don’t Be a Hero: A VILLAINthology
Deadline May 1 (must be received by this date; don't enter before March 1). Fairfield Scribes, a Connecticut-based writers' group, is holding a free competition to find the lead story for their forthcoming collection, Don't Be a Hero: A VILLAINthology. “Heroes are boring. Standing up for weaklings, defending the status quo, reacting instead of acting. Villains are the go-getters, the ones who put grand plans into motion, the ones who change the world. For their own benefit, naturally. Villains are complex individuals with tales of their own to tell, and it's hard to have a great story without them.” The winning story will be featured in the collection, and the winner will receive both an electronic and hard copy of the anthology. The author will also be promoted on the Fairfield Scribes website, and invited to participate in any reading events that will be scheduled (located in the Connecticut/New York area). Submit unpublished stories between 2,000-10,000 words. An entry can also be a flash series of 2-4 pieces (as long as the total word count for all pieces together is between 2,000-4,000 words and the stories are all related in some way). One entry per author. See website for email submission guidelines.
