Well Versed 2012 Press Release

This afternoon I received an e-mail and a press release from Judy Stock, President of the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild, which I thought I'd share.

Local Author Published in Anthology

Donna Volkenannt (that's me) of St. Peters, Missouri, has had work published in Well Versed, Literary Works 2012, an annual anthology published by the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers’ Guild. Well Versed features poetry, short fiction and creative non-fiction.

Volkenannt's non-fiction work, "The Magic of Writing," was awarded First Place in the Nonfiction Category and selected by a panel of independent judges for inclusion in the anthology. Her second non-fiction submission, "A Fine Day in November," was awarded an honorable mention and also selected for inclusion in the anthology.

Due to a record number of submissions and acceptances, the 2012 edition is the chapter's largest to date. The volume is available online at http://www.ccmwg.org/ (the group’s website), www.amazon.com, and at Taylor’s Bake Shop in historic Boonville, MO.

  2. Congratulations, Donna. Good things come to those who DON'T wait. They don't wait for editors to come knocking on their door. They don't wait for anthology editors to drop into their laps. Instead, they actively make it happen...they persist, they submit, they revise and re-submit.
