It is with great excitement that we are officially open for entries for the latest Book Whisperers collective book called 'Once Upon Another Time - a festive anthology'. We are looking for a variety of works from short stories (maximum word limit of 1,000 words please), poetry or illustrations. The theme of the book is winter / festive / Christmas but your story may wish to highlight the macabre nature of commercialism, celebrate the joys of family, be modern fairytale or pantomime. We are looking for comedy, tragedy, fantasy, romance, Christmas cheer or Christmas dinner in the dog house. We know you can deliver and we can't wait to see what you've got!
The deadline for entries will be December 1st.
'Once Upon Another Time' will be published on the 14th of December and will be available for sale. What a great gift idea for Christmas! To cover administration and publishing costs we are asking for a small donation of £10 per submission piece. Please feel free to post your ideas in our Facebook group (see link here) for support and feedback from our community. We look forward to reading your offerings! Happy writing!
All members of the website can submit an entry for consideration. Any piece that is not accepted for publication will be returned with feedback and editorial comment.
Just submit your entry via the form below - ideally with your £10 donation. Word count is limited to 1000 max and by submitting this form you agree to the work being published in this book. No royalties will be paid for any of the stories and any profit from the book sales will go back into The Book Whisperers CIC.
