Submissions Open for WbtR 2021 Anthology

January 1 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

Are you a member of Write by the Rails? Submit your work for publication in our forthcoming anthology, Confetti! Just as the title implies, the anthology will highlight work that is diverse, colorful, uplifting and celebratory. Send us your positive vibes for the new year!

Submission Guidelines

Fiction, Nonfiction, Mixed-Genre: 1500 words or less

Poetry: 1-6 poems, 5 pages max

All work must be PG-13 rating or below. Work must adhere to the ethics and standards set forth on our homepage and in our membership guidelines. The WbtR Editorial Board reserves the right to accept or decline submissions. If your work is accepted but requires editing, we will contact you. We will accept previously published pieces so long as you retain the copyright and attribute the initial publication. Authors retain their copyrights.

Instructions: Send submissions as a single document attachment (MS Word or Word compatible) to by midnight, March 31, 2021. Please include your legal name, pen name (if applicable), email address, and a short bio in your submission document with your work. If any information is missing, we may not be able to consider your submission. At this time, we are unable to pay contributors, but we will be promoting contributors and their work once the anthology has been published and there will be opportunity for contributors to take part in readings and other initiatives.

Please note, this anthology is a membership benefit. Therefore, only submissions from Write by the Rails members will be considered for publication. To become a member, visit our membership page here, complete the form, and remit the annual dues of $20.
