$2.00 USD

We have reached our cap for free submissions this month, so there is a $2 fee (the lowest allowed by Submittable) to submit to this category throughout the end of the month. If you do not want to pay the fee, come back on June 1st.


This category is to submit INDIVIDUAL STORIES to consider for the Retell It Like It Is: Classic Fairytales Retold by People of Color one-time anthology and the Luminaire Award for Best Prose. This is NOT the place for full book manuscripts or any poetry.


This category does NOT come with any complimentary digital books or any feedback options. You will receive a standard form reply only.

•No cover pages with contact information or acknowledgments within the file.
•You may submit as many stories as you choose, in one single document.
•Fiction only; do not send poetry or nonfiction of any kind, although prose-poems and hybrid work (that leans toward prose) are considered.  


We pay for all the work we accept.
