So, you may have heard rumors (or more than rumors) about some of us blogging/author types creating a little publishing company of our own…
I’m here, as the Jester, to tell you…
It’s true. It’s all true.
And, as we are working on figuring out what that means and how we can use this shiny new toy best, for ourselves and for all of you other blogging/author types, we are embarking on a philanthropic adventure that we believe many of you might be interested in taking part in as well.
Here are the details:
Silver Star Laboratory is seeking submissions for an anthology of contemporary poetry, prose, and short essays.
The topic: FATHERHOOD.
With 100 percent of the proceeds going to charity, the theme of the book is “…fathers’ words to their children, in the now…and the now yet to come”.
We are accepting both new and previously published work, as long as the rights to that work belong to the authors. The submission deadline is April 15th, with the book scheduled for release on Father’s Day, June 17, 2018.
Guidelines for submission are as follows:
Poetry, prose or essay, 0 to 400 words, maximum.
One submission per author.
The theme is “… fathers, words to their children, in the now… and the now yet to come”.
As mentioned, above, 100 percent of the proceeds generated in the writing, publishing, sales, and distribution of the book go to charity. No authors or publishers will be compensated for their work.
How does that sound? Pretty darn awesome, right?
So, how do you join in?
Submissions should be sent to Silver Star Laboratory at:
And, if you are thinking to yourself, “WOW, that sounds awesome, but I’m not a father…,” don’t fret because we have two more anthologies coming up we will be looking for submissions for as well. That will be communicated shortly. That’s a Jester promise.
And, if you are thinking, “Wow, that sounds awesome, but I don’t know what to write…,” reach out to myself or any of the other wonderful folks at Silver Star Labs, and we will help you get started. That is also a Jester promise.
