Insecure Writer's Support Group: Annual Anthology Contest

Insecure Writer's Support Group: Annual Anthology Contest: The 2019 Annual IWSG Anthology Contest is now open for submissions! Guidelines and rules: Word count : 3500-5000 Genre: Middle Grade historical fiction with a fantasy or adventure subgenre. 

If this sort of thing really is your bag, Baby, submit something!

They are also looking for another administrator.

I'd be a rubbish administrator, but I'm sure they will find someone great to fill the position.

I'm trying to work on a story for the anthology because I think it is good to challenge oneself. I usually write for adults, so I'm finding it quite a challenge indeed. I drive a lot and find it difficult to get through a day without cussing--it tends to bleed into my writing! ;-)

Anyone who thinks writing for children is easier than writing for adults is wrong and also incorrect. Of course, maybe the fact that my brain works upside down, backwards, sideways, anyway but the right way around, probably accounts for some of that.

  1. I have a few of the ISWG anthologies and they have had some excellent reading within.
    Good luck.
    Too many people writing children's books write down to them, which I think is a big mistake. And I have no shame in admitting that I continue to read books 'outside my age group'.
