Peninsula writers seek content for fourth anthology
Olympic Peninsula Authors announces the call for submissions to its fourth-annual anthology.
“This year, submissions should feature distinctions made by a bewildering time like 2020,” group members say.
Submissions can be a story, essay, memoir or poem(s) regarding unexpected detours, survival skills learned or unforeseen changes in one’s self. The contest is for local authors now or recently living on the Olympic Peninsula. Prose submissions should be no longer than 5,000 words (short stories, essays, memoirs); poetry may include several shorter poems or multi-page poems.
There is no fee to enter; however, if a submission is chosen to appear in the anthology, there will be a $35 production fee which includes one free print book.
Submissions are due no later than Sept. 20. For more entry specifications and more details, email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
