Classical monsters may include those from Greco-Roman mythology, ancient Egypt, the Near East, or any other ancient world cultures far beyond the Mediterranean.

  • £25 for flash stories (up to 1,999 words) or poetry
  • Maximum of 5,000 words fiction (with a preference for 3,000-5,000 words), or up to 50 lines poetry.
  • No reprints or simultaneous submissions. We are not seeking nonfiction or scholarship—essays have already been commissioned for this volume.
