Jersey City Writers (JCW) seeks stories that are more powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound…unless you are one lab accident away from world domination. That’s super too!
Whether it’s tales of humble heroics or terrible tasks, JCW is looking for original pieces of short fiction, stand-alone excerpts or narrative poetry that explores the superhero/supervillain genre. Your hero or villain must be your own creation (ie., not fanfiction) . So give us your best origin story, fight scene or whatever blows your cape up.
Selected works will be read at our October literary event and published on our website. Deadline for submission is October 3.
– 800 words maximum
– Attachment must be doc or rtf (NO PDFs)
– Unpublished works only
– No Fanfiction
– Three submissions maximum per individual
