Fantasy-faction.com is putting together an anthology, and they are looking for submissions. It just needs to be a fantasy story (all sub-genres are fine), no more than 8,000 words, and previously unpublished. You retain story rights, and you may win a cash prize. There’s only one catch. I should have told you sooner, because the deadline is fast approaching–you have until the end of the month to submit your story. Click on the link above, read more about the contest, and submit your story. Good luck!
Just pretend it’s a high school or college essay. You always waited until the last minute anyway. So get writing.
