Clexacon and Sapphire Books join forces to bring a thrilling anthology built around what we all like, the world of fandom. Or maybe you have a fantasy about your favorite cosplay character you met at a con? We are looking for fiction short stories that intertwine the love for fandom and/or cosplay. These stories should feature characters in a love story, crush, or just a ‘ship’ central to the story. We are looking for queer female characters and themes at the nucleus, or as a key part of the story.
The arc of the story should take readers through your favorite fandom or cosplay themed journey as the characters, and their relationships come to life. The use of real characters, shows, books, etc. or reference to same, is strictly prohibited.
Sapphire is seeking short stories written by members of the ClexaCon community.
Applications are now closed. Please contact Sallyanne Monti at [email protected] with any questions. Keep an eye out for the launch of the anthology at ClexaCon 2018!
Deadline for Submissions:

Estimated Release Date:
