My fellow writers,

Rolling on the Floor Laughing on Emojipedia 11.1
I’d like to draw your attention to the next tab, where I’m making a call for submissions. You can click on it, or I can repeat it here, since it’s short:

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Smocking Gun Short Story Anthology

Deadline June 1st, Stories in the form of 280 character tweets…
…Multiple tweets allowed, as long as you use the famous dots…..
…Three to five, I think, right?...
…Themes are smocking, boarder, covfefe, unpresidented, lasting peach, phone tapp, attaker, our deepest apologizes, Secretary of Educatuon, honered to serve, etc.….
…Some sources:……
…Standard Shunn formatting, 1 inch margins, double spaced, TNR 12 pt font, non-tab indents, please…
***If you’d rather submit a flash fiction story 1500 words or less, that would be great.
…Email submissions to kayegeorge at gmail com


Do you think this is doable or not? I’m thinking some short little pieces, satire, irony, humor, that kind of thing. But a story, not just a joke.

I have no idea if it’s a good idea or not, which is why I added the alternative of a flash fiction piece, but one containing some of the infamous blunders we’ve all gotten so much amusement from, and have gotten so used to.

The deadline is set way out in June, since I have a whole bunch of stuff going on early next year and won’t be able to deal effectively with this until then.

Someone mentioned that they wanted to know what the payment was (LOL!). I’ll let everyone know what the terms are when I secure a publisher, but, until then, you can assume the payment is either a contribution to a charity or a percentage of the take. Since I want short pieces and will, I hope, be able to accept a lot of them, the pay probably won’t buy you a small order of fries. Consider the payment your satisfaction on a job well done—and exposure. We’re writers. We’re used to not making money, right?
