Recently I’ve run across a couple anthologies looking for hopeful stories about climate change. Looks like people are tired of gloom and doom, or maybe even looking for solutions. Hooray!
“We are looking for optimistic stories envisioning the future of our world as we are impacted by and adapt to climate change. New narratives of radical transformation and sustainability.”
Story length: 2k-10k words
Payment: 2 copies of print anthology and Aus 5 cents/word (GST inc., maximum payment AUD$500) on publication.
Submissions open from May 15 to June 30 2016.
“The anthology will focus on times of environmental crisis and the people inhabiting these tipping points, fighting to effect change and seek solutions, even if it’s already too late. But these are stories of hope, not just disaster!”
Story length: 500 to 7500 words
Payment: US$0.06/word for original stories, or $50/$100 for reprints depending on length
Submissions will open once their kickstarter (planned for April) is fully funded.
Not an anthology. The top 3 stories will be published on their website. They’re looking for heroic and inspirational stories.
Story length: 1500-3000 words
Payment: $300, $500, or $1000
Open now; deadline is April 22, 2016 (Earth Day!)
