Calls for Submissions For Writers
This submission call is now closed. You can find calls that are still accepting contributions at Calls for Submissions.
A call for submissions from MLR about the language of flowers. I might have to write something for this while I’l waiting for our first crocuses to bud.
There’s an unspoken language that’s just there waiting to be used. Flowers all have their own meaning: CARNATION Yellow – You Have Disappointed Me; CAMELLIA White – You’re Adorable;TULIP Red – Believe Me; and of course, ROSE Single Full Bloom – I Love You. Spring is a time for blooms to blossom and tell a story.
All stories should have flowers being given to one of the MCs (can be cut flowers, potted or planted). A reference for flower meanings can be found at http://thelanguageofflowers.com/
Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 40k
Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed
Submissions should be sent to
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 5, 2017

This blog is queer-friendly. I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with queer/LGBTQIA characters and themes. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies,or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
