Akashic Books Calls for submissions & Celebrates Marriage Equality
Akashic Books calls for flash fiction submissions. Are you a parent going through the Terrible Twos? Did you live through them and survive? Terrible Twosdays is a place to commiserate over the unending shenanigans of your Darling Children (as the online parenting communities say). Nonfiction stories will be considered, so long as names have been changed to protect the guilty.
Inspired by our best-selling gift book for parents, Go the F*** to Sleep, Terrible Twosdays joins the roster of our other online short fiction series. Unlike Mondays Are Murder and Thursdaze, we're looking for stories with a light and mischievous feel, all about the day-to-day challenges of parenting. As with our other flash fiction series, stories must not exceed 750 words.
Complete guidelines can be found on our website. The series will launch in November with a story from Adam Mansbach, author of Go the F*** to Sleep, and will include contributions from Bernice L. McFadden, Nathan Larson, and more!
