What's Up?

The answer to that question, "What's Up?" is A LOT!

There's a new anthology contest that is open and taking submissions now. The main genre is Middle Grade Historical Fiction with the sub-genre of Adventure/Fantasy. If you're sharpening your pen and want to enter, take a look at the SUBMISSION GUIDELINES AND RULES. 

WRITE IT. EDIT IT. PUBLISH IT. Is working with #IWSG and they're getting some excellent submissions to their contests. In June, the theme was The Caged Bird, and thirty writers entered. While it was a hard contest to judge, Nick Wilford managed to winnow the "short list" down to three winners. You can click on the badges to read the winning entries, but you might also enjoy reading some others. The list is HERE.


If you didn't enter last time or you want to enter in the next contest, here's the theme and a link to the SUBMISSION GUIDELINES. Jump in. It's a lot of fun to participate.

Have you checked out IWSG on Instagram? Tyrean Martinson keeps our members and followers up on all that's happening.

Although our next Pitch Party isn't until January, you might want to put it on your calendar and start thinking about what you'll pitch and how you'll do it so it catches a publisher's or an editor's eye!

We are also looking for one more admin to join the team! If you are interested, please email us. Must be active member of either the blog hop or Facebook.

So do you think you'll enter something for the IWSG's next anthology? How about the August WEP? Do you have something in mind for the Red Wheelbarrow theme? Are you on Instagram? If so, we hope you'll follow us. Are you thinking about pitching your story in January? And are you interested in joining the team?

I wish I had time to become an administrator again. I hope to have something ready for the next pitch party.

I'll have to bookmark the page as a reminder to myself to keep up. LOL

I'd be a rubbish administrator, but I'm sure you'll find someone great to fill the position.
I'm trying to work on a story for the anthology because I think it is good to challenge oneself. I usually write for adults, so I'm finding it quite a challenge indeed. I drive a lot and find it difficult to get through a day without cussing--it tends to bleed into my writing! ;-)
Anyone who thinks writing for children is easier than writing for adults is wrong and also incorrect. Of course, maybe the fact that my brain works upside down, backwards, sideways, anyway but the right way around, probably accounts for some of that.
