Simone Press is looking for short stories for a new anthology about 'Place'. The characters, plot and atmosphere of your short story should be highly influenced by its setting which can be in the past, present or future. Your characters can be inside or out. Perhaps, your characters are in a dangerous area or under attack. They might be battling against extreme weather conditions or some kind of man made problem. Maybe, the place they are in reveals aspects of their personalities. They could even be travelling from one place to another. Perhaps, your characters are trying to escape from somewhere they dislike to a place where they feel happy. It could be that their surroundings have cultural or social values that influence your characters in a unique way. Whatever the situation, the environment that your story is set in should strongly affect the action, plot and direction of your story.
