Do you have a short story about a disabled person that is set in the future or near future?
If you like short stories and understand the importance of inclusion in your idea of the future, I might just have an anthology for you. It’s a charity anthology (this means there is no payment being offered for any submission) with all profits from sales benefiting the Special Olympics .
Every MC must be disabled and yet resolve the crisis. The key element is to show a physically or mentally disabled character has no bar to being a great protagonist.
Age level: should be no racier than PG 13
Length: 1500-7500 words
Deadline: November 30, 2018
Send submissions to stephanieebarr@Dragonfaeriecreative.org with the

Format: Word .doc/.docx file, 1″ margins, 12-14pt Times (or other serif font), double-spaced, contact info and word count on first page, running header w/name, title, page #, etc. The usual stuff.
