CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Eve - the first woman - some call her Pandora. Both the Christian and ancient Greek myths make her the reason man was plagued with the ills of the world. Whether in convincing Adam to taste of the fruit of the forbidden tree of knowledge or in giving in to her curiosity and opening a forbidden box that contained all of the plagues.
Well, it’s time she had a chance to tell her story.
WolfSinger Publications is looking for stories about the first woman created by the gods. Be imaginative and draw on more than just the traditional Christian and Greek stories. Let her tell her side of the story - whether she was manipulated and tricked into her actions or whether she acted willfully and in full knowledge of what her actions might bring. Or maybe - just maybe she acted out of spite for some wrong done to her.
Tell us her side of things - make the reader look at the old myths and stories in a new light and also at the differences in the genders in a new way.
BTW: Don’t forget about Lilith either - in some stories she was Adam’s first wife, before Eve.
Stories should be 3000-5000 words long.
Payment will be $5.00 plus equal share of 50 percent of royalties
Please send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org as an .rtf attachment.
Put “Eve Submission: ‘Title - Last Name’” in the subject line.
Deadline is 31 August 2009 (planned for a November/December release)
Preferred genre is Fantasy, but most will be considered if the story works. Please no erotica.
