"My Robot & Me"

Submission Type: Stories About Robot-Human Relationships
Submission Deadline: October 31st, 12:00am, EST

“My Robot & Me” is looking for submissions of short stories (3,000 - 7,500 words) about the ever blurred lines between robots and humans. As newer and better advancements continue to make us question just how far robotics can go, so must the stories we tell. Perhaps you write a romance between person and bot, or maybe a partnership gone wrong? We can’t wait to read what you come up with!

Humor Short Story Writing Contest!

Submission Type: Humorous Short Stories Submission Deadline: February 28th, 12:00am, EST

The Red Penguin Collection is so excited to announce our second anthology competition, and this time, it's gonna be funny! In submissions of 2,500 to 7,500 words, we are looking for humorous short stories that will make any reader roll on the floor laughing!

A little information on how we are running the contest:

The final book will feature the top stories (somewhere between 15 and 20) that were submitted overall, alongside the winner, which will be the first story in the publication. While the primary editor of the project will be choosing which pieces to publish, the entire editing staff of Red Penguin Books will be reading the top five stories (as chosen by the editor) to determine an overall favorite.

The winner of this contest will not only have their stories title featured on the cover, with a design that matches the top story, but the winner will also be rewarded with a $100 prize. The second place story will receive $50, and the next three $25 each.

We hope that you will join us in this first venture into comedy for the collections and we can’t wait to read your work!
