Description
Note: Up to 3 submissions allowed.

Art is everywhere. Our drive and ability to create for the sake of creativity defines us as a species and enriches our cultures, our societies, our lives. The best of these works of art, from novels to paintings to statues to music, are imbued with a special kind of magic. But when that magic is literal—when Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray ages instead of the actual man, and Mozart's Magic Flute plays its protective song—art takes on a whole new meaning. In ARTIFICE & CRAFT, we invite writers of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and other speculative fiction to spin their own tales of works of art that have been enchanted, hexed, charmed, or cursed.

ARTIFICE & CRAFT is to feature science fiction, fantasy, or urban fantasy stories where the story revolves around some type of artistic object that has been enchanted, cursed, hexed, or imbued with magical properties. We would like a wide variety of genre settings for this anthology. In other words, we don’t want the entire anthology to be secondary world fantasy settings. As always, we are looking for a range of tones, from humorous all the way up to dark.
