Adventure Story Reboot
The short pitch: Reboot a classic adventure story for a forthcoming anthology from Break Away Books.
The (slightly) longer pitch: Start with any adventure story (or character from an adventure story) in the public domain. Then reboot, reinvent, re-imagine. Feel free to play with any of the tools of fan fiction, including alternate universe, alternate ending, alternate point of view, or crossover. Want some possible examples? Think: Captain Nemo's origin story; Tarzan returning to the jungle as an old man; Zorro dueling D'artagnan; Robinson Crusoe, from Friday's point of view.
Other details: No entry fee. Writers will be paid. Simultaneous submissions okay. Previously published okay. Submissions close on 4/15/2017. Questions? Email:
