Most of you will have heard about the recent earthquake on Haiti and the terrible devastation it has wreaked.
As a direct response to the tragedy, Greg McQueen, an author from the UK based in Denmark, has decided to produce an e-book called 100 Stories for Haiti. All profits from sales will go to the Red Cross relief operation on Haiti.
Greg is inviting submissions of short stories (which must be upbeat and positive) for possible inclusion in the e-book. He is also seeking experienced people to join the editorial team choosing the 100 stories and editing them for publication.
Stories of up to 1000 words must be submitted in the body of an email by next Monday, 25 January 2010. For full details of how and where to submit your work, please see the guidelines on Greg's blog.
Greg needs short story submissions, editors and sub-editors. If you've got a few hours spare to help it would be much appreciated.
If you want to send a short story, please follow these guidelines:
- No more than 1,000 words
- Stories themed around hope and no stories containing graphic violence, death or destruction
- Send all stories in the body text of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stories sent as attachments will not be opened.
- Stories must be received by Monday 25 January 2010
