The Cunningham Short Story Competition

We are seeking lyrical tales about the world, either personal, natural, or political, which take the reader on a journey to events and places which they may not be familiar with.  Each tale should be no more than three thousands words, an orginal work, and show the reader the world anew.

The Cunningham Short Story Competition has published two collections LIFE DANCES, and YOUR WORLD, OUR PLACE, featuring 6 and 8 writers respectively. CSSC opens for submissions on the 15th January, 2019.

The Poetic Bond IX

The Poetic Bond IX is the ninth annual, international poetry anthology in The Poetic Bond Series.  So far 513 poems from 213 poets coming form 32 different countries have been published in eight volumes.  The Poetic Bond IX opens for submission on March 1st, 2019.

Making a Poetic Bond - the ethos behind putting together the anthology
The process of selecting poems for publishing The Poetic Bond series is unlike any other in that there is no set plan as to what will be published. It depends on the themes which emerge from the pool of work submitted, or to put it another way, the poetic energy which comes together at this certain time and place. Where themes emerge, patterns of energy harmonize, form bonds, connections, and these in turn lead to interconnected chapters, and the creation of a holistic volume, deeply connected with humanity, nature, and the universe.
