UK publisher Hic Dragones is looking for stories about female werewolves for their upcoming anthology Wolf-Girls: Dark Tales of Teeth, Claws and Lycogyny
Here's an excerpt from the publisher's website detailing what they are looking for:Submissions wanted for a new anthology of short stories of bad, bad female werewolves. Kicking, biting, clawing, fighting: the new lycogyny is far from pretty. We’re looking for new and established writers to contribute dark fiction tales for a new collection of stories filled with feral and feisty lupine femmes.
Editor: Hannah Kate
What we want: Edgy dark fiction short stories about female werewolves. Male characters are, of course, allowed, but the central character(s) should be female. We have no preconceptions about what ‘female’ or ‘werewolf’ might mean – so all interpretations are welcome. Any genre considered: dark fantasy, urban fantasy, horror, sci fi, steampunk, cyberpunk, biopunk, dystopian, crossover. Queer, trans, cis, straight are all welcome. High fantasy, revenge fantasy and anything about ‘lunar cycles’ or ‘Mother Nature’ will be considered, but are discouraged. Rather, we’re looking for new takes on an old legend, stories that challenge and unsettle. (And it should probably go without saying that we won’t be including any misogyny, misandry, homophobia, transphobia or racism!)Word Count: 3000-5000
And, according to the editor's blog, the due date for submissions is Monday 4th April 2011
