Quick Call for Submissions - Silver Boomer Books

Silver Boomer Books is posting a quick call for submissions for an anthology. They need short prose pieces (1000 words or less) which fit their Grandma’s Quilts/Grandpa’s Attic theme. Submissions of prose and poetry are accepted. Deadline April 15.

Please send your submissions to: silverboomerbooks@gmail.com - subject line should read: QUICK CALL - GRANDPARENTS.

Electronic submission is preferred, with the manuscript or poem pasted into the body of the email. They ask for one-time rights. Payment is $5 for poetry and $10 for prose plus a contributor’s copy. See guidelines for further information. Here's a link http://silverboomerbooks.com/submissions.html Scroll to HOW WE WANT IT for specifics on how to submit.

Oh, can't forget the weather: Today in St. Peters, MO: Sunny, high in the mid-fifties. Yay!

Note: Thanks to everyone who e-mailed about my absence from Donna's Book Pub over the last several days. Last Wednesday I had surgery. The results were good, and I'm feeling better now. Check back next week for another contest to win a book, plus other market and submission opportunities. Have a great weekend!

  7. Donna - thanks for the post. Please let Tammy know that the original call for submissions is indeed closed - this is a secondary call, closing April 15. SBB is looking for a few additional pieces of short prose (up to 1000 words)

  9. Hi Tricia,
    You're welcome.
    Some time ago I heard an essay of yours about your grandma (War and Peas? maybe) and another about an estate sale, so I know you have some great material to work with and submit.
