New Submission Guidelines: Redneck Zombies from Outer Space

Title: Redneck Zombies from Outer Space

Edited by Michael Knost and Jonathan Maberry

Submission period ends: December 31, 2011

Please do not check on status until after March 31, 2012

Publisher: Woodland Press

Publishing Date: Fall 2012

Word count: Up to 2500 words

Payment: Five-cents per word

Send submissions as an RTF attachment to: redneckzombiesfromouterspace@yahoo.com

Come up with a story that would fit the anthology title: Redneck Zombies from
Outer Space. Don't just take the obvious idea and run with it, come up with a
story you are pretty sure no one else will submit. Keep in mind that stories
should include a strong plot, well fleshed out characters (no pun intended), and
humor.

Stories DO NOT have to include zombies or rednecks for that matter.

This is intended to be a fun read, not bust-a-gut humor with every sentence. The
plot should not be a setup for a joke at the end. The ideal story will be a
good, solid one that has that classic B-movie genre feel to it…with humor
sprinkled in.

Again, you won't necessarily need a zombie in your tale, or rednecks for that matter,
but you will need to keep the theme of classic B-Movie science fiction/Horror in
mind.

Also, please title your story as a B-Movie (Science Fiction or Horror) classic.
i.e.: "I Married a Zombie from Outer Space."

Please keep the story clean of profanity and/or adult content.

No reprints or simultaneous submissions.

Please make sure your name, address, phone number, and email is listed on the
first page of the manuscript.

As for formatting, make sure to double-space lines, add italics where you want
italics, included only one space after a period.

ONE NIGHT ONLINE WRITING CLASS: SUBTHEME

I had a couple of folks asking if I would offer a class on the use of subthemes in fiction writing, and thought I would give you an opportunity to join the online class, too.

Since I have stepped back from conducting new four-week courses, I am still teaching courses and classes everywhere it seems, so I thought I would make this ONE NIGHT CLASS available to everyone.

So, if you are interested, here are the details:

SUBTHEME
Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at 9:00 PM EST.
Cost: $35.00
PayPal payment to: mikecollinsemail@yahoo.com

I hope to see you there!
