Realms of Fantasy: themed issue SORRY, THIS MAGAZINE IS CLOSING DOWN COMPLETELY. :cry: SEE http://www.rofmag.com/2010/10/18/a-note ... publisher/

Magazine
: Realms of Fantasy
Publisher: Tir Na Nog Press
Editors: Douglas Cohen and Shawna McCarthy
Seeking: short stories, art, and non-fiction
Theme: "women in fantasy"
Genre: fantasy
Restrictions: female authors only; "submissions dealing with gender, sexism, and other areas important to feminine speculative literature are particularly welcome"
Length: to 10,000 words
Payment: minimum 6 cents/word
Deadline: November 15th, 2010

full info here: http://douglascohen.livejournal.com/224566.html and here: http://www.rofmag.com/contact-us/

This is a pro mag and the competition is massive (figure a 7000 word story will net you $420, which is more than a lot of lesfic authors earn from a published novel), but it'd sure be nice to see some lesbian content sneak into this issue *cough Sacchi cough*
