Projects to Help Writers & Poets Get Published and/or Grow their Fan Base

As we near the deadline for presentations for possible inclusion into the three anthology projects, 28 writers and poets have chosen to participate, so far including approximately:

20 poets contributing 44 poems for Heart Whispers

5 writers contributing 12 fictional stories for Palpable Imaginings

3 writers contributing 14 stories for Slices of Life

The poetry is flowing in at a wonderful pace. Please keep them coming. I’d love to include 104 poems from 20 to 30 poets.

The stories are trickling in, but in the case of Slices of Life the number of stories and writers has actually dropped as some writers decided they didn’t have time to participate, were writing their own books, or decided not to participate for other reasons.

I’m committed to publishing all three anthologies this year and could use your help. Please spread the word to writers and poets about these opportunities.

If you are already participating, please tell others about your decision so everyone can see the quality and variety of the writers and poets involved. Based on the bio’s I’ve seen, I’ll bet the writers and poets already involved have published over a dozen books, had articles published in numerous magazines, and won a substantial number of writing awards.

Thank you!

With Love,

    I’m working on something that would fit Slices of Life but I can’t commit to making the deadline. It looks possible, but it will be close to when the deadline is due.

      Great! Thank you for the heads-up. Based on current numbers, I think it’s likely the deadline for Slices of Life will be extended, but I might be pleasantly surprised by how many more non-fiction stories are presented in the next 10 days.
