W. W. Norton is planning to publish an anthology of Hint Fiction in the fall of 2010, and they’re inviting submissions.
Hint Fiction is a story of twenty-five words or less that conveys the entirety of a story in a way that makes readers want to read them again and again. The stories should inspire ideas, evoke emotions, create untold scenarios. If your story is selected, they’ll pay you $25 for World and Audio rights. You can’t submit until August 1, so you have time to write a good twenty-five word story. It has to be titled, which will help explain the story’s greater meaning, and you must send it in an email between August 1 and August 31, 2009. You may send two stories in your email. Submission guidelines are at Hint Fiction Anthology.
