Transgressive Anthology... SUBMISSION CALL: "Writings On The Wall"
This one is for all you Chuck fans out there. Seven Archons is collecting stories for their first anthology of transgressive fiction. See the guidlines below.
What if your identity was a prison and self-destruction was your freedom? For "Writings on the Wall", we're looking for original transgressive tales involving highly developed characters who are nihilistic, anti-social, and seemingly mentally ill. These characters should feel out of touch, not only with themselves, but with the world around them. Give us your grittiest, unbound fiction. Stay to the point, but nothing is off limits. However, keep in mind we do want quality writing. If it is purely for the sake of shock value, it will be rejected.
Deadline: July 1
