Writing with Style will be taking submissions of flash fiction and novel excerpts to be featured on a new type of blog post, Writing as Art. If you are a writer interested in having your short fiction or excerpts from your longer fiction read and critiqued in a public forum, please send a brief e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . No need to pitch an idea or anything like that. Just a simple email will do. Make sure to include the following:
- Your name
- Your story or excerpt (750 words or less…less is better) pasted in the body of the email (Sorry, but I’m not opening attachments. I’m dreadfully afraid of viruses)
- Title the subject line with the word “Submission” followed by the title of your story. Like this: “Submission: Godzilla vs. Batman”
I will be responding to all submissions and I will let you know if your story has been selected. All genres are welcome, but the focus will be on the literary merit of each piece. If I decide to feature your story, I will also include a short write up with bio information and a brief critique, a great opportunity for anyone looking to increase their visibility.
So, what are waiting for? Send your story to email@example.com by 2/22 and check in next week when I announce the first title to be critiqued on Writing as Art. I look forward to hearing from you!
