Call for Submissions

Did you miss your chance to be in the groundbreaking anthology, The Scribes of Nyota? Are you ready to become a part of the phenomenon? and Pyroglyphics Studio are uniting once again to create the next exciting volume in an Anthology series and we would like to invite YOU to join us. Submissions for the next anthology are being accepted NOW and will close on 3/1/18.

The common goal of this project is to give a spotlight to creators and stories of the African Diaspora. As with all the volumes in this series, this anthology is designed to tell new, exciting stories under the umbrella of Sci-Fi while sharing a specific theme. The theme for this volume is “MAGIC.” Your stories and images can run the furthest gamut of “magic” and “sci-fi” (encompassing elements of supernatural, fantasy, science, and horror), as long as it carries Nubian representation and themes. The real question is, what does “MAGIC” mean to YOU and how do you represent it to create an emotional resonance between you and the audience?
