So I asked for authors to send me one of their favorite Anthologies that they'd written, this was the response I got. Don't forget, you have just under a month left to get your anthology entries to the proof team.
Statuary was probably one of the anthologies that I enjoyed writing the most and when people want to see what my writing is like, that is the story that I usually show them. I took the theme pretty literally and while the story itself is pretty basic, the op
Well, I completely forgot that I needed 3 different Wednesday posts for this month. So the dilemma happened early in the morning as I wondered, what can I post for the day? Well... Since today is the last day to send in your anthology entries to the proof team, I decided, why not take a look back at the anthologies for last year! Notice, that I mentioned today is the last day? Yep, make sure you have your anthologies sent to @Valkyrie by the end of the day today if you want them included in the
With only about three months until the next anthology is due, I thought I'd take a moment to see how everyone is doing with their anthology entries!
Feel free to share something about your anthology entry, or planned anthology entry, in the comments. Just a reminder, the two themes are In the Stars and Snapped.
Also, for veteran anthology authors, what is your favorite aspect of writing for the anthologies, and what advice would you give to authors who are contemplating
The themes of the 2019 Spring Anthology are: In the Stars and/or Snapped
Feel free to interpret these themes in any way you want. The anthologies are not exclusive, but inclusive, so don't worry if you think your entry has only a tangential link to the theme. If you are inspired, then write a short story, poem or play, and submit it.
Please read these submission guidelines carefully.
You may address these themes in any style or genre you choose. Be as creative
Sorry all, I know that this was supposed to post this morning, but the CenturyLink nationwide outage has affected us and made doing much of anything next to impossible. Hubby managed to get our mobile hotspots working so that I could post the wrap up blog. We had 17 brand new stories for your enjoyment from a variety of authors. Hopefully you've had a chance to read all the offerings, and there's something for everyone, but if you haven't, here's a master list for you of all the 2018 Fall Anthol
Well, this is it. The last of the anthology stories is finally live. Today's installment brings you three different authors. Don't forget to leave a review to let the authors know what you think and how much you appreciate their contributions to the anthology. In case you missed any of the previous sets, I've included the links below.
Fall Anthology: Set 1

Lifting the Veil
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Hope you've come to do some reading! As decided via the poll, we're going to try a new way of posting the anthologies this go around. Might be a good thing as we have a pretty good sized anthology this time as well. At first glance, it looks like the anthologies will post in four sets. We're starting with the first set this week and then will post a set every week until they're all posted. Hopefully this new way of posting will garner a bit more feedback for all of t
First off, a huge Thank You to @Graeme for handling the theme selection for me this year! We had a lot of great theme suggestions, but only four could be our 2019 GA Anthology themes. Thank you to everyone who voted. Before we get to the themes for next year, a quick reminder. You only have a few days to get your anthologies to the proof team for the 2018 Fall Anthology: Fight Back & Good Intentions. You can use one or both themes in your anthology entry, but you will have to pick which one
The final round of voting for the 2019 anthology themes is now open. The previous voting identified the 13 most popular themes, so it's now time to narrow that down to a final set of four themes. To do this, three polls have been set up to allow all authors and poets to indicate how they feel about each of the 13 themes by giving them a number from 1 to 5, with 1 being least liked and 5 being the themes you like the most.
Three polls have been set up because of limitations in the for
Thank you to everyone who has suggested themes for next year's anthologies. We're now able to start the process of voting for which themes we'll be using. This will be a two step process, with the first step being to reduce the number of selections to a managable number for the final round of voting.
I have created a thread (see link below) in the Private Anthology forum for all authors and poets to vote on which of the suggested themes they believe they could write somet
