OPEN SUBMISSIONS: ANTHOLOGIES, COLLECTIONS, AND SERIALS

Like writing to a prompt? Check out LT3’s current anthology, collection, and serial calls! Each call accepts all genres and any flavor of LGBTQ romance. Check each call for length requirements.

  • Lovely, Dark and Deep - Deadline August 31, 2014 - General Release Anthology - Wolves, fairies, ghosts, errant campers, and witches … fiction is rife with tales of what happens when people dare to enter, or leave, the woods. A classic setting from the oldest fairytale to the newest thriller, the adventure and danger that comes from wandering around a forest, or a jungle, provides endless opportunity for new stories. Less Than Three Press is seeking tales of all that can happen in the woods when those who shouldn’t be there venture into them anyway…

  • Villains, Inc - Deadline December 31, 2014 - General Release Anthology - Tired of goody-two-shoes? Why should those “glowing heroes of good” get all the glory? Villains! They can be antiheroes, misunderstood, or just people who love to cause chaos for the sheer madness of it all. LT3 is seeking stories where the focus is, for once, on the baddies. The badder the better!

  • Intertwined - Deadline January 31, 2015 - General Collection - Love is not always a matter of twos. Sometimes love comes in threes, fours, even more. What some consider a crowd, others consider just right. From a contemporary tale that defy society expectation of a happy couple, to a fantasy world where three or more is the expectation, Less Than Three Press invites you to submit stories about people who find that love sometimes has room for more.

  • The Devil’s Land - Deadline January 31, 2015 - Serial Collection - Cowboys, gunslingers, ranchers, robbers, miners … there’s nothing like a story about the people who manage to carve a life in a land where the law means little and every day is a fight. Be it cowboys of the Wild West, ranchers building something new on a distant colony, or a clever steampunk train robber, Less Than Three Press invites you to submit stories of people who have the grit to survive in the Devil’s Land.

  • Fairytales Slashed - Ongoing Open - Serial Anthology - LT3 is always open to submissions for our Fairy Tales Serial, our longest running serial and one of our most popular. Fairy Tales is a short story series that features classic fairy tales, told from a new point of view.

LT3 is always open to serial and general release ebooks, as well as our more specialized anthology and collection calls. For more information on LT3’s submission guidelines, click here!

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

16-year-old dresses as every culture and counterculture of the last 100 years

Flapper. Beatnick. Hippie. Hipster. 

In her project “Counter // Culture,” 16-year-old photographer Annalisa Hartlaub captures all the mainstream and countercultural movements that have defined the last 10 decades. The results are a stirring series of portraits that bring life to a century of women, contextualizing how the friction of mainstream and counterculture defined progression.

American History textbooks more like

Chapter 1: Introduction to White People
Chapter 2: White Settlers and The Indian Savages
Chapter 3: Whitey Makes A Country
Chapter 4: The Blacks
Chapter 5: Wars, Wars, Wars
Chapter 6: No More Racism!: Martin Luther King Jr. Gives a Speech
Chapter 7: The Modern Whites

As someone with a history degree, I’d like to point out college-level textbooks on American history spend a lot of time on Natives and the impact of European settlers, as well as how the Native and Black communities were part of the rest of American history.
