The Best New True Crime Stories: Small Towns
Deadline January 31 (must be received by this date). Mitzi Szereto's anthology series The Best New True Crime Stories (Mango Publishing Group USA) seeks narrative reporting, 4,000-7,000 words, on crimes that took place in small towns. Szereto is an author and anthology editor whose books encompass true crime and crime fiction, gothic fiction, cozy mystery, satire, parody, horror, sci-fi/fantasy, paranormal romance, erotic fiction, and general fiction and nonfiction. She says, "What I'm looking for: Well-developed thoughtful content that offers readers more than dry reportage. Known, lesser known and obscure cases are welcome. Add something new to the discussion, a different viewpoint or angle. First-person accounts are especially welcome from writers with some connection to the crimes. Stories can take place anywhere in the world and during any time frame. Material must be meticulously fact-checked before submission, including dates, names, locations etc. No reprints accepted." Contributors receive $130 and two copies. See website for formatting requirements.
