* More Calls for Submissions! *

Are you tired of reading about opportunities for writers? I hope not! I just came across a couple of new ones and wanted to share the information. 

How would you like to write a 3 - 5 minute manuscript that could be read by the Petaluma Readers Theatre? Click on the link to learn all about it.

Quite a few of my writer friends and I have blogged about Publishing Syndicate's anthology series: Not Your Mother's Book. A new title was just announced today: Not Your Mother's Book On...Senior Moments.  Oh yeah....I think many of us have stories we can write about for that! When you click on the link and arrive at their website, be sure to scroll down, reading all the anthology titles on the left. Give it a try! You've got nothing to lose,other than a possible publication! Two of their books have deadlines that are almost here: 
NYMB ...On Being a Mom: August 1, 2013 
NYMB ...On Family: August 1, 2013

~~~~~

Tiny Lights is currently accepting submissions for its quarterly Flash in the Pan. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the guidelines. 

~~~~~

Tiny Lights also accepts "answers" to questions posed by Editor-in-Chief, Susan Bono, in Searchlights & Signal Flares. My answer to What keeps you honest? can be found here. The next question that needs to be answered is What do you wish you could write about? ANYONE can submit their answers to these questions, and EVERY ONE OF THEM will be posted online at Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative. I can't imagine why any writer wouldn't want to give it a try.

~~~~~

I think that's it for tonight. I'll announce my give-away in my next blog post.

    1. Well hi there, Pat! Gosh, another person I haven't seen in a long time. And I'm sad to say I haven't stopped by your blog in ages, either! Thanks so much! And I hope your back is better asap. (I have back issues, too, but found a wonderful chiropractor a few years ago. Best thing I ever did for myself!)

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
