On October 15, 2019, Mannison Press released a multi-author anthology called Little Girl Lost: Thirteen Tales of Youth Disrupted. This collection brought together authors from across the United States and Canada, and spanned a variety of genres including horror, dark fantasy, sci-fi, and crime drama. (You can learn more about it here on our Anthologies Page.)
But even while the anthology was still in editing, the question was already starting to pop up: “Will there be a companion volume?” We played coy at first — after all, our plates were full! — but we were soon thrilled to be able to answer: Yes!
And now’s your chance.
As of December 1st, submissions are officially open for Little Boy Lost: More Tales of Youth Disrupted. While similar to the submissions requirements for Little Girl Lost, authors are encouraged to review the new guidelines carefully before submitting. The complete submissions guidelines can be found HERE [link disabled; submission call closed].
Submissions are scheduled to be open until February 29, 2020, or until the anthology is filled. This means that should the anthology remain unfilled come this date, the submissions window may be extended; conversely, should the response be overwhelming, Mannison Press reserves the right to close submissions early. (If the latter situation arises, we will make efforts to provide adequate notice.)
Little Girl Lost was an amazing journey…we can’t wait to see where Little Boy Lost will take us!
Thanks for reading.
