CHWG Anthology Project

Hello all and welcome! As a member of the Coffee House Writer's Group, you have the opportunity to be a part of our next collective anthology project! The purpose of this anthology is to showcase the talents of our writers while raising awareness for the Coffee House Writers Group to the public. My name is Bill Wilbur and I am a member of the group. Christine asked if I would act as editor for this anthology. I currently have four published books, two of which are short story collections. Here is the information you need to submit your work to this collection:

Theme:  It is present day. Your character(s) find themselves in a deserted town in the Arizona desert called Beggars Crossing where red cliffs loom up all around, keeping the town hidden. They encounter a mysterious old man who sports a long white beard and walks slightly hunched over using a cane. The town shows signs of habitation, but the old man is the only person your character(s) see. It is up to you why they are there, but before they leave, your character(s) must experience magic, either good or evil, and they must accidentally leave something behind when they go. Do not try to explain who the old man is, he should remain a mystery. Character, plot, and conflict are all up to you.

Stories should be no longer than 3000 words.

Deadline for submission is November 15th 2015

Stories must follow the writing prompt.

Bill Wilbur will choose the final stories to be included in the anthology.

Author agrees to donate their work to the anthology.

Submissions should be in the form of an email attachment as a .doc file.

No late submissions will be accepted.

Editor will not significantly change your work, with the exception of punctuation.

Submit only your best work. Correct grammar and spelling is appreciated. All genres considered.

100% of the proceeds will benefit CHWG Organization.

Late submissions will not be accepted.

Questions should be sent to:
