The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

The Gray Sisters

Myths and faerie tales have been historically used to explain the world or enforce societal behaviors. The Gray Sisters are looking for tales that explain the events or enforce the behaviors of the 20th and 21st centuries in fanciful ways. The stories don't strictly need to take place in this world, but they do need to relate back to its existence or behavior.



- A new explanation for a phenomena or occurrence that has happened or conceivably

will happen within your lifetime.

- Using old characters or creatures in new stories.

- Telling an old story in a modern way, (it should be nearly or completely unrecognizable

from its old form.)
