I’m delighted to be working with a spin-off faction of the Birmingham Writers’ Group in marketing an exciting new anthology of short stories.
once there was is the working title of a project set up by members of BWG to showcase talented Birmingham and Black Country writers.
We’re currently appealing for new short stories, of between 3,000 and 5,000 words, to be submitted for entry into once there was. We will consider stories of any theme from any genre, excluding children’s fiction and erotica.
Talent, originality and inspired writing are more important than your previous publishing history.
The project is being self-funded by the BWG and once there was organisers. We are offering publication and a valuable platform for successful entrants.
The closing date for submissions is 1 September 2010 – and authors should be from Birmingham or the Black Country (or at least have a connection with the area).
Writers interested in submitting a story should visit www.oncetherewas.wordpress.com and read the guidelines carefully. Ideas, tips and writing-related articles will also appear there in the coming months …
