 SORGHUM & SPEAR: THE WAY OF SILK AND STONE 

Anthology Call 2019

Greene County Creative, a content agency, accepting submissions for its first anthology, Sorghum & Spear: The Way of Silk And Stone. We are looking for original works that fit the inclusive fantasy world of our comic book series, featuring young girls and women of all walks of life as they are influenced by their roles in the Forever War. 

Sorghum and Spear

The Way of Silk and Stone

The tenet, “Pray for Peace but Prepare for War.” is weaved deep into the culture of the An’Fre women. Sorghum & Spear speaks to the global diaspora, African, Latin, Asian and Indigenous. Stories that highlight or reveal a new perspective of fantasy in this rich, inclusive world are ideal. We seek works that explore love in all its forms, diversity, fate vs choice, self-discovery, and supernatural talents, and original works that portray the strength, sisterhood, and diversity of women—hallmarks of our world-building efforts. Given the unique guidelines of our world, we ask that you review Sorghum & Spear and its world-building rules carefully prior to submission. 

 

 

Special consideration will be given to women and writers of color whose personal stories may additionally lend to their storytelling.
