Left Hand Publishers is open for their new anthology, 'Reimagining Classics’ (working title):
It’s going to be a collection of short stories based on classics. Take a classic story, character, or theme of your choice (of any type) and reimagine it. The writer must make it easy for the reader to identify the character or storyline from the classic, but then take the reader in a different direction by reimagining the story – perhaps with humor where there wasn’t before, or maybe tragedy, or even mystery.
They’re after speculative fiction, suspense, crime, horror short stories from 4,000 to 10,000, paying $25 USD per piece. The challenge of skirting copyright might be one that appeals to you!
The market closes to submissions on March 1. Our listing is here: https://literarium.net/market/left-hand-publishers/reimagining-classics/
