Monthly Free-Write Time w/ Mini Craft Chat

Bring your notebook or your laptop and spend some quality time on that writing project that's been gnawing at you! Each free-write session will have a little craft chat thrown in that addresses common roadblocks, editing techniques, or open Q&A about submission processes, craft, editing, and the glorious(ly confusing) career choice that is Freelancing.

Led by Killian, who has an MFA in creative writing from Pacific University (Fiction, 2014) and is the Art Director for Barrelhouse Magazine.

Wordless Comics

Comics are like movies and TV, in that you can combine visual elements of art with language. Sometimes, though, a good story doesn't need words. Let's take a cue from silent films and comics creators like Jason, and try to tell a complete story (short and sweet) through a sequence of images. No experience necessary!

Open Submissions for "Tudor Close"

Open Submissions for "Tudor Close"

Tudor Close, a Collection of Mysteries

The Apiary invites you to submit your work to Tudor Close, a collection of short mysteries. Please read guidelines carefully, because the instructions are very particular!

     Our short story collections are unified around a single element – for example, the stories in our adventure collection, The Egret’s Crossing, all mentioned a bar in Tangier. In this collection, all stories will mention a mansion called Tudor Close.
     We know that there’s a limited market for mystery shorts, so to submit to this collection, please send a sample of 1,000-2,000 words, written in a style that reflects how you would write this particular story, along with a very brief cover letter telling us a little bit about yourself. The writing sample doesn't have to be a mystery, it just needs to show your unique voice and ability. We strive to publish diverse voices.
     We’ll select seven stories to include in Tudor Close. Stories can take place any time post-16th century and into the future; word count can range from 3,000-6,000 words. Each mystery will reference Tudor Close. Deadline to submit your writing sample: August 1, 2015. Drafts will be due September 15; books will be published in December 2015. Tudor Close will be available in print and ebook, and profits will be divided among the writers.

To submit, please email killian.czuba@gmail.com with the subject "Tudor Close Submission."
