Two opportunities for writers and readers
I want to make a simple announcement today, but it includes two things:
First, the anthology for Authors’ Tale, Once Upon a Wednesday, is going live March 15, and right now, we’re having a launch event. Join in, because along with the short stories provided, there are 110 writing prompts! You can pre-order the book by clicking on the image.
Other books from authors in the anthology will be prizes in giveaways, as will a few of the anthologies, themselves. Oh, and profits from any book sales will go to the represented organization, Literacy for Incarcerated Teens.
Check it out and see if you might even want to take part in the next anthology! Because entries for that one open in June. Heart of a Child is the theme, and you’ll need inspiration from our writing prompts to be eligible. If you’ve never heard of the Authors’ Tale anthologies, check out reviews from the last anthology, which included a workshop, or join Authors’ Tale to dive in headfirst.
Authors’ Tale will have a lot going on this year, but right now, we’re focusing on the first anthology and the next anthology-to-be. This is a big project, and we want more on board!
So, how are these opportunities?
- Check out this post on why you should write short stories and take part in anthologies. That’s one reason it’s an opportunity.
- Being a part of Authors’ Tale automatically places you in a community of people who want to help, who will help, and who will ask for help. You’re not alone with your troubles as a writer or with your hopes as an author. Let a community guide you or support you on your journey as you support them in return.
- Writing prompts! Many amazing novels have started from simple writing prompts, and if you buy the anthology, you’ll see responses to these writing prompts, as well as the list of them so you can write your own response.
- Taking part in the launch event could earn you free stuff. Who doesn’t like free stuff?
So go for it. I’ve attached every link you need within the post, but in case you didn’t notice, I’ll provide the important three below.
