Psst hey you wanna join an anthology?
Because you’ve come to the right place.
#TalesFromTheFediverse Volume 2 is coming, and I need to populate it! If you’re a #writer or #artist and want to get published, shoot me a DM with what your ideas and I’m more than likely to accept it!
Don’t have time to do an entire story? Submit your ideas for covers as well!
And as always, boosts are appreciated!
