Word Weaver Writing Contest Update AND Anthology Update

danI should probably stop doing updates for two different things. It gets confusing.



the Word Weaver finalists have been decided.

And until the big announcement, no one knows who won but me. I think. My daughter may have spied when I did the last round of tiers. But otherwise I think it’s a close circle of tight lipped confidants.


Anyway, we are on schedule to announce the winners of the July 2017 Word Weaver Writing Contest on August 15, as scheduled.

Not really sure why that needed announcing but I felt like it did.


But I will say, wow, what a tough group of entries this was. Very hard to determine a winner, there were so many terrific stories. I’m not sure I got a bad one. You guys are bringing your A Game. And it’s fun to read these things.


Next, the ANTHOLOGY.

We decided on “scary”as out theme but don’t feel super limited by that. Send me something and let’s have a look. The goal is to get everyone exposure, so if you have a macabre story or paranormal or fright night or blood and gore, send it in for consideration.


The deadline is September 1.


Don’t worry about the LENGTH of your story. I’m looking at pieces 6000 words long and pieces 99 words long, okay?

Some of the ideas that have been accepted are:

  • Jenny tells a tale about a ghost ship.

  • Lucy’s PorterGirl has a eerie encounter.

  • Mine is about a guy who had a kind of daydream where he relives a horrible event that happened to someone else.

  • Allison has written a bunch of really short pieces that I’m planing on putting in between the other stories.

  • Plus I think she is writing a regular length short story.

  • I’ve received about a dozen or so other stories that I’m reading this week, about all kinds of things. Don’t feel limited.

If you’ve never been published before, this is a big opportunity for you. There’s still room. And look at those people you’ll be published with!

What’s scary? It’s practically wide open.


So click on the Contact Me button and send me something.

  1. Ugghhhh, I want to know who won what! Way to keep the tension going, LOL. 😉

    I’m interested in writing something for the anthology. I’ve written a few scary stories this year, so after I edit them, I’ll go over and submit them. When’s the due date for submitting to the anthology again?
