Reminder: Call for #submissions to #RichardIII anthology! #ShortStories #HistFic

The deadline for submissions to the new Ricardian anthology, ‘Right Trusty and Well Beloved…’ may be a full two months away, but entries are already coming in – and the standard looks to be very high indeed. Thank you to everyone who has sent a story or a poem to me already.


book and motes
If you haven’t yet, there is of course plenty of time left for you to polish a piece of fiction you may already have written or to write one from scratch.
I have amended the suggested word counts slightly – and please remember they are only suggestions. I’m happy to receive any piece of prose fiction inspired by King Richard up to around 4,000 words or poetry up to about 40 lines. (The 500 word guideline for ‘flash fiction’ is more to let you know we love to read short pithy pieces as much as longer stories. In the previous anthology we had a range of lengths, from about 200 words up, and it was a nice variety.)

For more details, please check out my blog post at…/call-for-submissi…/ and scroll to ‘the Boring Bit’. If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Good luck with your entries!

Loyaulte me lie. 😃🐗📚
