OPEN CALL SPECULATIVE FICTION AUTHORS
What is speculative fiction?
Speculative fiction is a broad category of narrative fiction that includes elements, settings, and characters created out of imagination and speculation and not based on reality and everyday life. It encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.
As you can see the word speculative covers a broad range of stories types.
New to writing short stories? You can read my guest post on Christine Rains blog about What makes a good flash fiction piece?
I really enjoy writing short stories and flash fiction, the challenge, and how it helps me improve my scene writing too. Good practice for exercising our writing muscles and honing our skills.

Looking forward to reading all the stories.
A well-written short story is always a treat. I look forward to seeing what people write.
Writing short stories definitely trains us to write tightly, with focus. And I do love speculative fiction.
