Welcome writers! Whether you are young or old, new or experienced, published or not, you are welcome here.

Writers will be paid royalties based on sales of book/s.
Spring 2016 Anthology: stories due April 16, 2016. For our spring anthology we will be looking for stories of triumph, survival & renewal. Stories DO NOT have to be set in the spring season, they may be set in any time/season of the year. We are looking mostly for true accounts (however fiction will be accepted) of surviving life threatening illnesses/diseases, surviving abuse, overcoming addiction etc. Stories can be about anything from the kid who thought they couldn’t make the team but then went on to help the team win the big game to surviving a life threatening disease to battling addiction to working hard to get that dream job or anything in between! Stories can be true accounts or fictional stories. Fiction should be at least 2,500 words but no more than 6,000, non-fiction should be at least 750 words but no more than 2,500.
Summer 2016 Anthology: Summer Fun Fiction; stories due May 31, 2016. For our summer anthology anything goes! All fiction welcome: Adventure, Contemporary, Fantasy (including folklore, fairy tale, myths, dragons etc), Historical (including Western, Regency, etc), Mystery (including whodunits, detective, thrillers, etc), Science Fiction (including space, aliens, superhero, etc). “Adult-only” content not accepted. Fiction should be at least 2,500 words but no more than 6,000; first chapters of novels, not yet published, will be accepted.
2016 Christmas Anthology: Stories due August 1, 2016. We are looking for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s and Valentine’s stories to inspire and entertain during the holiday season. These stories can be true accounts of wondrous, miraculous or even just comical holiday experiences or they can be fictional stories. Fiction should be at least 2,500 words but no more than 6,000, non-fiction should be at least 750 words but no more than 2,500.
Children’s Holiday Book Project 2016: Stories due August 1, 2016. We are looking for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Valentine’s stories to inspire and entertain CHILDREN during the holiday season. These stories can be true accounts of wondrous, miraculous or even just comical holiday experiences or they can be fictional stories. True accounts must be written fictionalized. Stories should be between 500-600 words and written for children ages 3-8. These stories will mostly be read by adults to children, so don’t worry about using easy to read words for beginning readers. Characters can be animal or human but main characters should be young, let any adults in the story be supporting rather than main characters. The young characters should be driving the action in the story.
Art work for Children’s book: Upon acceptance authors must submit three pieces of art work (at their own expense) to go with their stories, the first to show the beginning action of the story, the second to show the middle action and the third to show the resolution action of the story. To the best of our ability we will place art work on the left page with roughly 150-200 words on the right page of each story.
