Cast of Wonders seeks submissions from young authors for Banned Books Week

web site

Deadline: June 30, 2020 7PM EDT


Our theme for 2020 is Lifelines: books that help us get through periods of isolation

"Books" can be any one-way form of communication: a box of letters, a podcast, skywriting - anything the recipient can't easily reply to. "Isolation can be either physical or social: an astronaught alone in a spaceship a person I na place where no one speaks their language; someone in prison.

The stories don't necessarily need to have a happy ending, but they do need to end on a hopeful note. And of course they should follow all the standard Cast of Wonders guidelines.

We are not accepting simultaneous or multiple submissions for Banned Books Week 2020: please submit only one story to this call and please don't submit stories here and to another venue at the same time. (It's okay to have one story submitted here and a different story submitted to a different Cast of wonders call at the same time, though).
