Work has begun for the GLVWG Anthology, “Writes of Passage”, with scheduled publication March 2021, to coincide with the Write Stuff Writers Conference™, March 11 – 13, 2021.
The Anthology Chair, Suzanne Mattaboni, provides the submission dates and guidelines below.
It’s a great way to exercise those writing chops while in quarantine. So get writing.
From Suzanne Mattaboni – Submission Guidelines for the 2021 GLVWG Anthology
If you wish to be included in the 2021 GLVWG anthology, here is information for formatting your file, submitting your work, and what to expect next.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted (.doc or .docx). Work may be submitted beginning June 1. Cut off for submissions is September 1, 2020.
Work must not have been previously published. It must be an interpretation of the theme (“Writes of Passage”) and PG-13 in content (no explicit gore or sex—use discretion on strong language).
- Fiction – 2,500 words max
- Essay – 500 words max
- Poem – 10 lines minimum, 65 lines max; 70 characters max per line
You may enter as many of these three categories as you wish, but you can only enter once in each category.
If your entry is not accepted for any reason, you have until the March 31 deadline to submit another entry.
Formatting Your File
The title of your file should include your name and your story name. For example, “Brennan – Blast From the Past.” Your full name and email address should be on the first page of your submission. You could put it in a header (so it’s on every page) or simply put it in the upper left-hand corner of the first page.
The title of your work should be underlined and centered on the first page. Use Times New Roman 12 point font and double-space your work. The first line in each paragraph should be indented; no extra space between paragraphs.
Submission Link Pending
As we get closer to the submission window, we’ll provide a submission link.
Thanks, and I hope you’re staying well!
