Renee Stevens

The theme of the 2018 Spring Anthology is Now or Never and/or Encounters

 

Feel free to interpret these themes in any way you want. The anthologies are not exclusive, but inclusive, so don't worry if you think your entry has only a tangential link to the theme. If you are inspired, then write a short story, poem or play, and submit it.

 

Please read these submission guidelines carefully.

 

You may address these themes in any style or genre you choose. Be as creative as you want to be with the themes. However, please note that this anthology is an anthology of short stories. By definition, a short story must stand alone and not require reading a prior story. It therefore cannot be a chapter in a serial.

 

Who may participate

 

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. However, submission to GA Stories requires that you be a member here at GA so you can be assigned as the author. If you have author status (which is free and you can get after five posts in the GA forums), you can submit stories.


Submission Guidelines

 

Submission Date: May 15th, 2018

 

Please Note: Submission date is for submission to the Anthology Proof Team. Proofreads should take no more than 72 hours once you have been paired with a proofreader, if you have not received your story back within 72 hours, please contact Renee Stevens via PM. If you send your stories in within the last 48 hours of the deadline, you have 48 hours after receiving it back to upload it in order for it to be included in the Anthology.

 

Non-Poetry

  • No Story Limit: Each story submitted must meet quality and editing guidelines and only one story can be under 1,000 words.
  • Each story posted as its own submission
  • Minimum Word Count Per Story: 1,000
  • Maximum Word Count Per Story: 25,000


Poetry

  • Up to five poems
  • Posted as a single submission (a collection)
  • Each poem posted as its own chapter


Submission Procedure *Please read carefully*

 

Once your story is complete and has gone through your beta and editing team, please complete the following steps:

  • Contact @Valkyrie via PM. Include in the PM the following information: Title, original editor, genre, synopsis, word count, and excerpt in the body of the PM. Attach your story file. You will be paired with an editor from the Anthology Proof Team who will perform a final proof for the anthology and return the file to you. *Please Note: The Anthology Proof Team is not meant to take the place of an author’s normal editing team so all entries MUST be edited prior to contacting  Valkyrie*
  • Once you receive your proofed file, complete your edits and submit your story into GA Stories, for help, please read How do I upload my anthology entry into GA Stories?
    • Make sure the story is unpublished by clicking BOTH the publish sliders, one for the chapter and one for the story itself
    • Select “Fiction” as the category. It will be moved to the correct category by the anthology team.
    • Mark your story as COMPLETE. Only completed stories are allowed in the anthologies
    • Please note that once you submit a story it will NOT show up in your list of stories until the anthology has gone live.
    • Copy the URL for your story and provide Renee Stevens with the URL via the announcement thread so that your submission may be checked to ensure it has been submitted correctly and meets submission guidelines. This also ensures that it will get moved to the anthology category. Please give the URL to the STORY page, not the chapter page.
    • *NEW* Each theme will have it's own category. When providing the URL for your story in the announcement thread, please state which theme your story best represents.

    [*]Please do a visual check of your story once it has been uploaded to ensure that it uploaded correctly


Extensions

 

Occasionally things happen that prevent an author from meeting the deadline. If you should find yourself in such a predicament, PM Renee Stevens, before the deadline (not the day of or after), and something may be able to be worked out. Please contact Renee only if you need an extension; requests will only be considered when requested by the author personally. However, if the same author is consistently asking for extra time, extensions may no longer be granted for that particular author. Deadlines exist for a reason. The Anthology Team needs time to prep the anthology to go live and extensions, while occasionally warranted due to unforeseeable circumstances, add to the already hectic workload. If you have NOT made arrangements with Renee prior to the deadline, your Anthology will not be included. Please do not send a message the day an anthology is due requesting an extension, these will not be granted. You are welcome to post your story on your own and include a story note stating that it was originally meant to be part of the anthology.

 

Story Titles

 

Please do not use the anthology themes or your GAUsername as a title. Be as original as you can. In case of duplicate titles within the anthology, we will request that titles be changed.

 

Unacceptable entries & Content Warnings

 

Entries that are obviously unedited (containing many errors), are overly graphic, or which are deemed to have unacceptable content will be either declined outright, or changes may be requested as a condition of entry. For information on what is considered to be unacceptable, please see the Story Content Rules FAQ. If you still have questions, ask.

 

Please include a Content Warning in the story notes if your story contains sensitive content. Examples of sensitive content: abuse, especially graphic/extreme abuse or child abuse, in-scene graphic violence, suicide attempts/themes, allowable incest, etc... if you're unsure that your story falls within this type of content please alert Valkyrie when you send the PM requesting the final proof.

 

Previously posted stories (whether at GA or elsewhere) are not eligible for inclusion into the GA anthologies.

 

Editing

 

All entries MUST be edited prior to being sent to the Anthology Proof Team. If you need an editor, please visit the Writing Support Requests forum to request one. There are editors who prefer to edit only one shots, such as anthologies. Please make sure to state that your story is for the upcoming anthology. Also, please make sure to follow the guidelines when requesting an editor.

 

Copyright

 

As with all content in GA Stories, the rights remain with the individual authors. Your story will post with a simple 2018 copyright notice, using your GA user display name. If you have another preference (for example, a different name, or a Creative Commons license, or specific copyright wording you'd like to use), please include that with your submission.

 

However, with this anthology, by submitting your story, you are giving GayAuthors.org first worldwide rights with 14 days exclusivity. What that means is you are giving GayAuthors.org permission to archive your story on its website, distribute it via RSS, kindle, iphone, ipad, eyeball…. And you agree not to publish it anywhere else for 2 weeks.

 

If you later decide to post your story at another site, please mention at the beginning or end of the story that it was first published as part of the 2018 Gay Authors Spring Anthology: Now or Never and/orEncounters, and include a link back to GA if possible.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Renee Stevens via PM or via the Anthology Blog or Forum.

Thank you to all the Authors and their teams, the Anthology Proof Team for giving the stories a final polish, and Mann Ramblings for the Anthology banner!

It's that time of year again!!! Normally today would be a prompt day, but as I've been having trouble fitting in this post, I decided to go ahead and post it on a prompt day. As those who have been here for years can tell you, it's the members who help us determine the themes for the years anthologies. Even with all the recent changes to the anthology, we still want the members to help us come up with suggested themes. From now, until September 29th, the GA membership can suggest themes and then a group of authors will narrow those themes down.

 

The following are the new theme suggestion guidelines (more details in the theme suggestion thread):

  • Members can suggest up to 5 themes
  • All theme suggestions can be no more than 3 words (any theme suggestion going over this will be disqualified)
  • Suggested themes can NOT be a previously used theme. You can check the list of past themes, here.
  • Theme suggestions posted on the blog entry do not count. You must post your suggestions in the theme suggestion thread.


Once the theme suggestions are closed to new themes, a group of authors will help narrow down the list and pick the themes for the 2018 Anthologies, which will then be posted both in the forum and in the weekly wrap up blog.

Renee Stevens

Attention all GA Members! Put your pen and paper down and put on those reading glasses, if you have them. It's time to do some reading, as the 2017 Spring Anthology is now live for your enjoyment! We had twelve authors take up the challenge of the Jagged Edges/Unintended Consequences themes and there are fourteen new stories and poems for you to go through. Don't forget, if you like a story, leave the author a comment to show them your appreciation.

 

All authors who participated in the anthology were entered into a drawing as part of the author incentives. The winner gets to choose which prize they would like:

  • 1 Month Premium Membership
  • 1 Month Ad Space - This can be used for a GA story, a published story, or your story collection
  • $5 Credit to the GA ebook store

 

And the winner is

CassieQ

(Pm me with your prize choice)

 

On top of author incentives, we want to encourage readers to read and comment on the anthology entries. For each story a reader comments on, they will get one entry into the drawing. Comments need to be more than just a "great story" or "I liked this". Share your thoughts with the author and you could win one of the following prizes:

  • 1 Month Premium Membership
  • $5 Credit to the GA ebook store


If you'd like to better your chances, write me a blog review (200-500 words) on your favorite story from the anthology and I'll give you an extra 2 entries! Readers will have until June 1st to review stories and/or write a blog review. The winner will be announced in the Weekly Wrap Up on June 4th.

 

Now, let's see what the authors came up with!
