Details for ANTHOLOGY SUBMISSIONS


The Two Sisters Writing & Publishing Anthologies of Inspiring Stories are an opportunity for you to showcase your writing in a non-fiction story about topics as diverse as weight loss success, adoption, cancer survival, LGBT issues, and many more. 

      
Our Anthologies evolved from our many conversations with writers who have incredibly inspiring stories… but who do not have the resources to have us ghostwrite and publish an individual book for them.  After much contemplation about how we can help these writers and individuals and share their stories with the
world, we conceived the concept of theme-based anthologies.


Our first anthologies of 2019 will be on the following subjects:

Inspiring Stories of Weight Loss Success

Inspiring Stories of Adoption

Inspiring Stories of Cancer Survival  

Inspiring Stories of Insight from Spiritual
Healers and Hypnotherapists

Inspiring Stories of LGBT

Inspiring Stories of Spiritual Awakening

Inspiring Stories of Near-Death Experiences

Inspiring Stories of Recovery 

Inspiring Stories of Romance, Weddings, & Marriage

Inspiring Stories of Soldiers & Veterans

Inspiring Stories of First Responders

Inspiring Stories of Teachers

Inspiring Stories of Immigrants

Inspiring Stories of Organ Transplants

Inspiring Stories of Motherhood

Inspiring Stories of Fatherhood

     
Each anthology will consist of 10 stories on the designated topic.

To have your work considered, please submit a 500-word sample from your intended work of non-fiction through Submittable. We charge a non-refundable reading fee of $44.

Please include the following on your submission:

Your name, email address, and phone #

The title of your work

A bio of no more than 100 words

If your story is selected for publication, the fee of $5,000 will cover line editing, proofreading, and all publication costs. 

If your story is selected for publication but you need and/or want assistance with the writing process, Two Sisters Writing & Publishing can provide services for Book Coaching, Ghostwriting, and Rewriting. These services are provided for additional fees for which a special discount will be applied for anthology submissions.

If we go forward with publishing your story, you will be required to sign an Affidavit and Release of Liability, stating that the story is an original work, that you own the copyright, and that you indemnify Two Sisters Writing & Publishing of responsibility should the story contain any plagiarism or copyright violations.

You may submit more than one sample per theme; however, only one entry per author will be included in each anthology.

You may submit a writing sample to all themes.

Two Sisters Writing and Publishing December 2018 Writing Contest

Write a mystery -- specifically a whodunnit...

According to wikipedia: "A whodunit or whodunnit (a colloquial elision of "Who [has] done it?" or "Who did it?") is a complex, plot-driven variety of the detective story in which the audience is given the opportunity to engage in the same process of deduction as the protagonist throughout the investigation of a crime. The reader or viewer is provided with the clues from which the identity of the perpetrator may be deduced before the story provides the revelation itself at its climax. The investigation is usually conducted by an eccentric, amateur, or semi-professional detective."

Target length: 1,000-1,200.
