Deadline May 31 | Call for Feminist Science Fiction: Daughters of Icarus (Pink Narcissus Press)

Post date: 23 May 2012
Deadline: 31 May 2012

Daughters of Icarus

A brave new world of feminist science fiction

Pink Narcissus Press seeks short feminist science fiction writing for its "Daughters of Icarus" anthology. Submissions must explore gender roles in society; hard science fiction is not appropriate to this anthology. So long as your submission takes up this challenge, the only other requirement of authors is that the work have an original and creative voice. Please note that the gender of the author is irrelevant, and male authors are welcome to submit. However, authors of any gender would do well to acquaint themselves with the likes of Ursula K. LeGuin, Margaret Atwood, Octavia Butler, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman to obtain a sound footing in the genre and a better understanding of previous work in the genre. Stories housed in new, unique worlds are preferred, as are those describing fantastical societies. Stories of any length will be considered.

Submissions for "Daughters of Icarus" should be sent to: icarus (at) pinknarc. com
