I had the opportunity to speak with Jade Bernas, the publisher of Story Philippines, a few times over the last couple of months; it's always good to meet old friends. He had the idea of collaborating on one special, experimental fiction issue, a Story Philippines/Digest of Philippine Genre Stories collaboration. Jade always has good ideas.
So in light of that, this post is a special call for submissions for stories for that special issue. Whatever guidelines you know from Story Philippines or from PGS apply, the only difference being that Jade and I will be bringing our sensibilities together as publishers, editors, and most importantly, as readers, to this project. Simply put, we're looking for good stories, stories that work (wait, don't we always? ;P). Disregard whatever restrictions/perceptions you have of our publications for this special issue, and just send in the story you want to write. We're looking to fill 6-8 slots in the Table Of Contents.
We're going to try and bring the best of our publications together. All pending submissions to each of our publications will be considered, but we would also like to invite new submissions. Deadline is , 2009. If you have any questions, just leave a comment here, or send an email to pdofsf(at)yahoo(dot)com. Please send all submissions also to that email address (subject: Submission, Story/PGS, "Story Title").
