Well Versed 2013 Open for Submissions


The other day I received an e-mail from Linda Fisher, managing editor of Well Versed.
Well Versed is the anthology published by the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild. The dandy logo on the left is from the chapter's website.

According to Linda's e-mail, the editors are now accepting submissions for Well Versed 2013.

Linda advises in her e-mail that the submission rules have changed this year, so please read the guidelines carefully. You can access them by clicking on this link.

The submission fees are modest, and prizes are awarded to winners in three categories: poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. If your work is selected you will receive one contributor copy plus a nominal payment.

Last year the editors received a record number of submissions and published their largest volume to date.

The submission deadline for the 2013 anthology is October 31, 2012.

Personal Note: I had two nonfiction pieces in the 2012 anthology, which I found to be an extremely polished and professional publication.

Good luck if you submit!


  1. Donna--Thanks for sharing this. I'm sending off my "Fifty Shades of Santa" submission tonight, so I am ready to start on something new.

    You're always so generous, and always post these with as much lead-time as you can possibly muster, so thank you.

  2. Thanks for the pointer, Donna, and happy Friday. Enjoy your coming weekend.
