We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming (with just one more upcoming new release left to announce) for another big announcement! For the first time ever, Mirror World is running a contest.
So if you’ve ever wanted to join the Mirror World family, now there’s another way for you to do it. As of June 1st, 2020, we’ll start accepting entries into our Far, Far Away Anthology contest.
Here’s what we’re looking for so you can get writing:
Short stories or novellas from 5000 to 25,000 words featuring other worlds, times, places, or versions of reality.
That’s character-driven stories with an emphasis on world building with an engaging opening. We’d be happy to see stories set in distant galaxies, on another planet, in a far-off kingdom, a made-up world, a dreamscape, or involving time or space-travel.
There will be a small fee to enter, with all proceeds going towards compensating the panel of judges for their time, paying the winning authors, and towards the production of the anthology, which we plan on releasing in 2021.
So if you’re a writer and you want a chance to see your story in our anthology, start writing now!
Maybe one of these opening lines will help to get you started? (These are optional, but useful)
In a land far, far away…
In a distant galaxy…
Once upon a time…
In the land of _____,
On Planet _____,
In the year _____,
We look forward to reading what you come up with!
There will be more details to follow as we get closer to the contest submission date, but if you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with us.
And we’re still looking for judges, so if that’s something that interests you, please get in touch with us!
