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

2016 Christmas Anthology: Stories due September 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 September 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 may be as little as 100 words or up to 500 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: 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 text on the right page.
