Philadelphia Stories (PS Books) and the students from Rosemont College’s Publishing Program are collaborating to create an anthology celebrating women writers 50-years old and above. If you are a woman 50+, we invite you to submit your short story, flash fiction, novel excerpt, poetry, or creative nonfiction for consideration in this anthology.
The students in the Operating a Small Press course will select the works, edit them, consult with the authors, choose the layout and design, and do take the project from start to finish. Furthermore, they will create a marketing plan. The anticipated launch date will be in the Spring of 2016.
Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions will be accepted between June 29th and August 31, 2015
Multiple submissions will be accepted as follows:
- 3-4 pieces of flash fiction
- 3-5 poems (limited to 30 lines per poem)
- Up to 2 short stories or works of creative nonfiction (stories limited to 4,000 words)
- Only 1 novel excerpt – please (limited to 5,000 words)
Please attach each piece (as a word document) to your email.
We are looking for previously published work (please note initial publishing credits), but will consider unpublished work as well.
In the body of your email, please include a 125-word bio (submissions without a bio, will not be considered).
