Dates - Anthology Call - Comics and Short Stories
"Dates! An Anthology of Queer Historical Fiction" is seeking pitches for comics, prose, and illustrations featuring queer characters living their lives in different periods of history around the world and living them well. For this anthology the theme is "Adventure". They want 5 to 15 pages for the comics and 2500 to 3000 words for prose. The historical setting should be before the 1900's but they do state they will look at stories going up to 1964, but nothing set in the American West. Payment for comics is $50 per page and a flat rate of $60 for prose. The deadline to make your pitch is July 9, 2018. You can find the details here. There are a lot of details of what they do and don't want in the guidelines so read them carefully.
