Christmas is drawing ever closer. What better time to expand the community of new writers?
I am looking for new short Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa stories (up to 7,500 words) from New Authors/Writers looking to build their online reputation. Stories must not have been published anywhere else in the past. (We don’t want to get in the middle of copyright infringement muck.)
Please edit your short story before submission. You must be okay with touch-up editing if needed (no fee). (If it doesn’t need it, it won’t be touched.) I will not change your storyline or claim any credit for your story, and I will send back the edited/touched-up version for your approval before I publish it on the website. Since there is no fee to submit, I will not take on any heavy editing. Include a link to your author website or a place to purchase your already-published work(s) (I will include these with your short story).
I will not publish or consider unedited stories. (Please don’t send in your first draft.)
Include: Title, Author Name, applicable links, Text (up to 7,500 words) in Word Document; Holiday theme
E-mail Submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Selected authors will be notified by e-mail by Dec. 17, 2015.
I will select up to FIVE stories of those submitted to be published on my website. No monetary compensation will be given as there is no charge to submit a short story; however, you will gain extra author exposure by networking with other writers and their platforms.
