As an added resource stream for the traditional Legion of Dorks December fundraising marathon for Toys for Tots, we at Cursed Dragon Ship have decided to organize the first ever Legion of Dorks anthology: LAUNDERED: AN ANTHOLOGY OF MONSTER MESSES.
We’re looking for short stories no more than 7000 words exploring the theme of monster mess clean-up for the first ever Legion of Dorks publication. Submissions are open from January 1, 2019 to March 31, 2019. Your story must be an original, never-before-published creation that centers around the people or creatures or machines who clean up after monsters.
You must include at least
one monster, traditional or made up, and at least one cleaning crew or person
to meet the theme requirements. You cannot write in anyone else’s world.
Otherwise, have fun and let your imagination dominate.
- A butler is tired of cleaning up after his vampire master who insists on killing his own dinner when he could simply and neatly buy from the butcher.
- The seamstress frustrated with her clients who can’t seem to take off their clothes before transforming.
- The janitorial staff at a hotel are tired of spectral guests leaving slime all over the walls.
- The ideas are endless.
We are offering $50 per submission accepted. All proceeds from the sale of this anthology, after the production cost, will be donated to Toys for Tots in conjunction with the Legion of Dorks December fundraiser.
Email all submissions to submissions@CursedDragonShip.com in standard short story format with the subject “Submission for Laundered (last name).” One story per email please.
