The submission deadline for our self-publishing project is drawing closer. You have until midnight on October 25 to send in an essay on why you write (500 words or less) for our “Why We Write” collection or a short story (2,500 words or less) for our fiction anthology.
This summer, members focused on the first step in any self-publishing venture – writing and finishing something. At the GLVWG meeting on September 27th, we talked about step twoundefinedgetting critiqued. It’s a good idea to get some feedback from someone you trust before submitting your work. This has more to do with than pronoun confusion and comma placement. You want to make sure something in your story is connecting with the reader.
Remember, you can send one entry for each category. GLVWG is assuming all financial costs for this project, but club members have to provide the content.
We’re hoping everyone chooses to participate. If short stories and essays don’t get your pencil moving, please consider helping out with promoting the anthologies, designing the cover art or writing an article about the project.
Hoping to hear from you soon,
(GLVWG treasurer and self-publishing veteran)
Submissions are due by midnight on October 25 2014. All submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org a doc or docx file or pasted into the body of the email.
