Fantastic Schools 5 and Fantastic School Hols – Call For Submissions

Wisecraft Publications is putting out a call for submissions for the next pair of Fantastic Schools anthologies.  We are looking for stories (3000-12000 words, unless by prior arrangement) set in magical schools, or related in some way to the theme of magical education.  If you are interested, please read the guidelines below and then drop us an email with your proposal.  All profits shared equally.  Please also forward this email to anyone you think might be interested.

Check out the first volumes here.

Fantastic Schools V.5

We are looking for generalist stories set within a magical educational environment.  They can be of any sort, including sporty, bully-gets-theirs, newbie wins respect, dark lord gets beaten by students, etc.  We prefer reasonably stand alone stories, but feel free to write them in your own worlds; we invite writers to include details that might draw new readers to their stories.

Fantastic School Hols

What do students do on those long school holidays?  Work experience?  Private tutoring?  Visit each other’s homes … whatever else … as long as it touches on magical education in some way.  We prefer reasonably stand alone stories, but feel free to write them in your own worlds; we invite writers to include details that might draw new readers to their stories.

Guidelines

We are looking for submissions of stories dealing with any aspect of life at a magical school and/or magical education. School life, extracurricular activities, teachers’ trials, life as a magical custodian—this is your chance to explore beyond what has appeared in your favourite magical school, be it Hogwarts, Roke, Whitehall, or more.

The Fantastic Schools anthology is intended for a YA and general audience. Stories do not need to be directed at a YA audience, but story content should be appropriate for both teen and adult readers.

Magic schools must be original to the author or used with the author’s express permission, which must be provided in writing beforehand. No unauthorized fan fiction will be accepted.

Please query with your story idea, so to avoid too many stories on the same exact topic.

Word count: 3000 to 12,000 (for longer stories, inquire.)

Payment: Authors will receive equal shares of 55%  of profits.

Please send queries and questions to:

Note: Query acceptance does not guarantee a place in the anthology.
