Call for Poems, Essays and Stories by Women Writers Living in Western NC



Celia Miles and Nancy Dillingham issuing…
A call for entries for our fourth (and final?) anthology of WNC women writers
It’s All Relative!
Family Noir or Family Extraordinaire
Send us your very best stories, essays, and poems—real or imagined, whichever is your bent…
We’re looking for the good, the bad, and the ugly—with emphasis of the ugly, the strange, the odd, the quirky, the peculiar—even the extraordinary, the  hilarious, the supernatural.
Dig deep. Go “underground.” But please submit your very best, most creative, well-edited work.
General guidelines:
Deadline: June 1. We are aiming for a fall “launch.”
Short is better—2000 words the absolute word limit—and no more than forty contributors
Send in Word doc or docx or rtf only. If we can’t open it easily, we won’t read it.
Use Times New Roman, 12 point font, double space, with one inch margins.
Previously published material is fine if you have the rights.
We reserve the right to edit accepted manuscripts, but do not wish to do heavy editing.
Include your bio of no more than 50 words.
Contributors will receive one complimentary copy and a reduced price on initial purchase/s.
Send material to Celia Miles at celiahoopermiles@gmail.com, as an attachment.
We know WNC has excellent writers. We look forward to hearing from you.
