New markets

  • Furry Frolics (tentative title) is a new anthology from Thurston Howl, edited by Fred Patten, paying in contributors’ copies only. Looking for stories that are humorous, and lean into the animal aspect a bit (i.e., the stories wouldn’t work with all-human characters). Word count: 2,500–8,000. Deadline: October 1, 2017. Submission Guidelines.

For ongoing markets previously covered but still open (and occasionally, open in the future), visit the FWG web site:

Remember to keep an eye on the Calls for Submissions thread on the forum, as well as other posts on the Publishing and Marketing forum.

Odds and ends

The Tuesday Coffeehouse Chats continue to take place on the FWG Slack channel, while the Thursday chats continue to take place on the shoutbox.

As usual, we’d like to keep recruiting you to the FWG Goodreads group: add things to our members’ bookshelf (see the instructions here on how to do that), start conversations, draw rabbit ears on other authors’ head shots, and so on.

Have a terrific month! Send news, suggestions, feedback, and furry Slack bots to furwritersguild@gmail.com, or leave a comment below.
