Citadel Epub: Topic/Theme for Issue 5
« on: December 06, 2017, 10:32:45 PM »
We are going to try and do a 5th issue of Excursions from the Citadel.  Each issue thus far has had theme or topic and each author offers up his or her interpretation of that theme or topic in the form of a short story, poem or essay. The stories need to be either fantasy or science fiction and between 2000 and 20000 words. In the forums, "Day You Die" stories seemed popular, but let us have a poll none the less.   I am only going to leave this poll up for two weeks,  because I want to get started on the writing as soon as possible. The deadline for submission of your stories for this issue will be April 1st with a goal of publication in May.  All members of Strolen's Citadel are welcome to vote and I hope all will participate.

I'd try my hand at a short piece.
