BHC Press Anthology Opportunites & Call For Submissions
About the collection:
We’re looking for short stories that deal with real teen issues of today. Reach down deep, and pull out raw, complicated, and messy tales of life. Surprise us with your insights. Break our hearts or make us laugh through the tears. Shallow or deep, selfish or loving, create characters with real flaws and give us a reason to love or despise them. Whatever angst fuels your creative fires, we want to read about it.

No fantasy, science fiction, or horror.

About the collection:
This unique collection centers the stories around one town and will carry an arc through the collection. In order to do this, we ask that all submissions be set in Graves Grove in any time period from 1880 to present. 

Preference will be given to the stories that fully utilize as many of the suggestions, places, people, businesses, and sites that you see below. Preference also given to stories that cater to the creepy, mysterious mood of Graves Grove. Writers are encouraged, however, to write stories about characters of their own with these other characters serving as a background.
