Call for Submissions: Broccoli to Writing: and Everything In-Between

Authors Promoting Authors offer an opportunity to be included in a new anthology.

The WORKING TITLE is: Broccoli to Writing: and Everything In-between.

We have extended the date of entries until April 2, 2010, due to the Christmas Holidays.

This anthology is open for submissions of short stories and poems from all levels of writers in any genre of fiction or non-fiction. All submissions must be the original work of the individual submitting it, and rights for publication in this anthology must be clear.

Word count must be 1,000 (minimum) to 7,500 (maximum) words for short stories or essays. We will consider poetry of any length.

It is not necessary to have known Dick Stodghill in order to participate. However, the book is a dedication to him. The proceeds of the book will go directly to an established charity of Jackie’s choice, in Dick’s name. We will be announcing the charity she selects soon.

Please adhere to the submission guidelines put forth in this letter. The same rules apply as if you were submitting to an agent or publisher, which are as follows:

1. Short Stories and Poems may be on any topic in any genre. The title promotes all things Dick liked and disliked, so no topic is off limits.
2. Format all submissions in Word doc using Times New Roman, 12-point font, with 1” margins on all sides, and double-spaced with the pages numbered in the lower right-hand corner. Type the title of the piece and author’s name in the upper-right hand corner of each page. Example: Title/Author Name
3. Poetry should follow the same guidelines, minus the double-spacing.
4. A cover letter, with the title, the name you want used on the story, your contact information, and any other relevant information, should be included. If this is not included, we cannot accept the submission.
5. We will edit and proofread all accepted submissions.

Works included in the Anthology will be decided upon by April 10, 2010 and notifications made by April 15, 2010.

Once a submission is accepted, a release form will be sent to you for your signature, giving us the right to use that particular submission for this anthology, as well as any advertising and/or marketing used for promoting this anthology. You will retain the rights to your submission.

Projected release date of this anthology is sometime in late spring or early summer. A definite date will be decided when we have received all the submissions.

Please submit your work to or mail to Weaving Dreams Publishing, P. O. Box 194, Watseka, IL 60970.

We are looking forward to your submissions!

Marie Pacha and L. Sue Durkin
