Hello everyone!! It is that time again.

Journeys II will be about some type of Journey that could not happen to you in everyday life. It can be anything from a dream to another planet. Genre is not important it is the story that matters. The theme is "Out of this world" and can include any Journey you can think of that would not be likely to occur in everyday life! Please title all submissions.

To submit you must have participated in the Writer's Journey Blog before October 1, 2022. This Anthology is a thank you to the wonderful and talented people who let us share their journeys through the WJB.

Submit only final edited manuscripts. A manuscript that has many errors will be rejected. Send to with your name and Journeys in the Subject line.

Example: Subject: Elaine Carnegie/Journeys

Short stories 3,500 words. Submit only one (if it is rejected you may edit the story or resubmit another)

Flash Fiction max 1,000 Submit two

Poetry No minimum or maximum word count Submit three (Please punctuate your own poetry. I am terrible at that! If you don't... no complaints about how I do it!)

Previously published is fine as long as it is in keeping with the Journeys theme and you retain all rights to publish. You must however tell us about the previous publication(s) so we can credit the publisher.

Journeys II, The Anthology will be published by Stone Pony Publishing/Author Services. which is mine. Kerri Jesmer will once again join the editorial team.

Ebook and Paperback. If anyone wants hard back I'll format that too if you purchase at least three. (Please request early if you want them)

There is no compensation for publication of your story. If there are any profits (we struck out last year) they will go to the Reach Out and Read Foundation. (Click below for more info)

All copyright stays with the Author and you will sign a contract for publication rights only, along with an exclusive period of 30 Days after publication of this Anthology, at which time the right to republish is yours.

Submission dates will be from August 1, 2022, until November 1, 2022. (Unless we fill up before then.) It is my goal to publish in November for Christmas. (You might want to keep that in mind for your Journeys)

Authors will appear in the Anthology according to the order they were accepted. That is much easier on me for the formatting process.

Good Luck everyone! I can't wait to read your stories!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. My email is the only thing I monitor daily.

Next week we will begin the Writer’s Journey Blog Author feature again. Thank you for your patience!
