X Marks the Spot…and we’re not talking about THAT spot
We all have that one spot. You know, the one that makes you shiver or turns you into a pile of goo. Whether it’s the inside of your elbow (on just the right side) or that spot under your left ear, the small of your back, right at your hairline on the left side of your neck…you get the point. Or what if the spot you have makes you go “ewwww”? Licking that certain spot just makes you want to get far, far away…say your nose or toes?

Submissions should:
  • All stories should have a character focused on the spot on another character
  • Suggestions: an established couple where the MC uses that spot to annoy the other for attention; a new couple exploring just where the “acceptable in public” spots are; finding a new spot on your partner that makes him want to take you against the wall
  • Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 40k
  • Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed
  • Submissions should be sent to special_submissions@mlrpress.com

The Value of a Moment
What is the value of a moment? Do you know in that time and place that your world is changing? Whether it’s… meeting your soul mate… the death of someone close… the birth of a child…joining the military…coming out and being thrown out…graduating college…moving across the country. The moments that make up our lives are varied and numerous but do you know the value of that moment until it’s a memory?

Submissions should:
  • All stories should have a defining moment for a character
  • Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 40k
  • Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed

Maybe a Hero?
Raymond Chandler once said “down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man.” If men come in every shape and size then it seems to reason that heroes do too. What really makes up a hero?

Submissions should:
  • All stories should have a hero as a main character – the definition of a hero is up to the author it does not have to be a super hero
  • Suggestions: a policeman or fireman (or a couple made up of one of each) dealing with the effects to him and his city after 9/11; a returning soldier trying to fit back into home life; two comrades in arms during World War I or II falling in love on the front lines; an EMT just trying to survive after all he’s seen
  •  Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 40k
  • Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed
  • Submissions should be sent to special_submissions@mlrpress.com
  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 1, 2016, stories will release during the month of November 2016
Any questions can be sent to Kris Jacen at KrisJacen@mlrpress.com
