Please support this Kickstarter Project by poet & author LB Sedlacek – “MARS OR BUST” Project!

20 November 2016

This project will only be funded if at least $250 is pledged by Thursday, December 8, 2016 – 7:48 AM, CST.

Adventurous poems about traveling to Florida: I-95, Kennedy Space Center, Legoland, Savannah by poet and publisher L.B. Sedlacek.

View LB’s “MARS or BUST” Mission Statement Video by clicking on the link provided below:

About this project:

I’m a long-time poet and I love to read and write poetry. I had the privilege to be a poetry seminar class with Maya Angelou in graduate school. Since then I started a free poetry resource for poets, “The Poetry Market Ezine” and I’ve been publishing it for more than 10 years. We have over 2,000 subscribers. “Mars or Bust” is full of poems about my family’s annual trip from North Carolina to Florida. We love Legoland! We love Kennedy Space Center! We love Florida! My son is my co-collaborator on many of my projects and draws my cover art. I believe the Arts are so important in education so I truly enjoy working on projects that encompass more than one of the Arts at a time. These are fun whimsical poems about a rather unusual (but not so unusual for us) family vacation in Florida and also traveling through South Carolina and Georgia at Christmas time.

I plan to offer free copies of my ebooks from the popular series for poets “The Poet’s Survival Guides” and to also offer a free copy of my chapbook when published, and other goodies depending on the level of commitment. With funds from my project, I plan to publish “Mars or Bust” as a chapbook and ebook and to sell it online and at readings.

I’m a true poet’s poet:  I read poetry every day, I subscribe to poetry magazines, I buy and read poetry books.  I truly love poetry.  “Mars or Bust” will help me to continue to introduce poetry to folks who may come to love it as much as I do!

Thank you for your support!

 This project will only be funded if at least $250 is pledged by Thursday, December 8, 2016 – 7:48 AM CST.

RISKS and CHALLENGES:

Some of the obstacles I’d face is that is hard to get people interested in poetry. I offer my chapbooks at readings and also online as ebooks. That helps keep the expense down and make it affordable for people to try it out. If I break even on my chapbooks and maybe make a few extra dollars that is my goal as I’m mainly trying to cover my expenses and publishing and promoting my chapbook. Just getting one more person interested in poetry is a win! Just like one small step for mankind, it’s one more small step for poetry to get a new poetry reader!

The 2016 Siskiyou Prize

4 November 2016

Judge: JoeAnn Hart

The winner will receive a cash award of $1,000

A four-week residency at PLAYA (Details below)

 

The contest is open to published or unpublished full-length prose manuscripts, including novels, memoirs, short story collections, and essay collections.

Manuscripts should be approximately 40,000 to 90,000 words (i.e., please do not send novellas or individual essays or stories; please also note the contest is not open to poetry or children’s books).

Published books eligible for the prize must have been published within the past five (5) years; books published in the year 2010 or earlier are not eligible.

About:

“New environmental literature” refers to literary works that focus on the environment, animal protection, ecology, and wildlife.

We’re looking for work that redefines our notions of environmentalism and sustainability, particularly when it comes to animal protection. We are not seeking books about hunting, fishing, or eating animals—unless they are analogous to a good anti-war novel being all about war. Under these basic guidelines, however, we’re open to reading a wide range of fiction and nonfiction with environmental and animal themes.

About the name:

The Siskiyou Prize is named for the Klamath-Siskiyou region of northern California and southern Oregon, one of the most diverse eco-regions in the world. The Klamath-Siskiyou has the highest concentration of Wild and Scenic Rivers in the nation, the largest area of roadless wildlands in the Pacific Northwest, and the tallest old-growth trees on earth. Due to this large network of still-intact lands, the region is a refuge for fish and other wildlife that struggle for survival in other parts of the world. Considered a global center of biodiversity, the Klamath-Siskiyou region is an inspiring example of the importance of preservation.

Contest Guidelines:

Manuscripts must be received between September 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016.

All submissions must be made online via Submittable and must include the following:

  • a cover letter with author’s full contact information, including name, address, phone number, and email address; if the manuscript is a collection of stories or essays, please include acknowledgments in the cover letter
  • the full manuscript, including a table of contents, if applicable
  • a nonrefundable $17 reading fee

A Few More Details…

  • Multiple submissions are welcome, but each must be submitted separately and accompanied by the $17 reading fee.
  • The $17 reading fee is nonrefundable, and we are unable to accept changes or additions once manuscripts are submitted.
  • Because our goal is to celebrate and promote all new environmental literature, both published and unpublished books are eligible for The Siskiyou Prize.
  • We require electronic submissions via Submittable for unpublished manuscripts. We strongly prefer electronic submissions via Submittable for published books as well (please send the final version of the book as a PDF). If you must submit a hard copy of the book, however, please use Submittable to pay the fee and include a cover letter letting us know the book will arrive via U.S. mail (Ashland Creek Press, Attn: Siskiyou Prize, 2305 Ashland Street, Suite C417, Ashland, OR 97520). Please note that authors/publishers may be asked to submit a second hard copy if their books are chosen as finalists.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Visit the website for details:  http://www.siskiyouprize.com/

Poetry Super Highway: Great Poetry E-Book Free-For-All!

4 November 2016

Announcing: the 12th annual:
Great Poetry E-Book Free-For-All!

The mission of the Poetry Super Highway
is to expose as many people to as many other
people’s poetry as possible.

What?

A crazy project in which your poetry e-books will be freely available to all interested humans on Earth for a 24 hour period.

Throughout November we will collect e-books from poets and writers interested in participating.

Then on December 1st, 2016 for a 24 hour period, a special website will go live with links to all of the e-books. For 24 hours anyone will be free to download, for free, as many of these e-books as they like…a poetry e-book free-for-all.

How?

To participate, read all of the guidelines below and then click on our Online Submission form. That’s it. It’s simple. By doing so, your e-book will be included.

The E-Book has to be written by you.

E-books should be in PDF Format for universal compatibility with anyone’s computer.

If you have an e-book in Microsoft Word or another format, please convert it to PDF. One way to do this (if you don’t know how) is to visit the website http://www.freepdfconvert.com/. From there you will be allowed to select the file on your computer which will uploaded and e-mailed back to you in PDF format.

When creating your e-book file, please keep it smaller than 1 megabyte.

Once you’ve created your e-book (not before), click on our Online Submission Form to join in!

Do not fill out the form and then e-mail us your e-book later. Please fill out the form and use it to upload your e-book to us.

We are not accepting e-books or submissions by e-mail. The only way to join in is by clicking on the Online Submission Form below.

On December 1, 2016 at Midnight (the evening of November 30), we will distribute a special e-mail letting people know the location of the web page with links to all of the e-book files. People will be free to download any or all of the titles and your poetry will be freely, electronically, travelling all over the world. This web page will go off line 24 hours later at Midnight on December 2nd.

We will also list your e-book and description on this web page along with the link to your website for all to see.

When it’s over, we’ll produce a list of how many copies of each book were downloaded for no reason other than you may find it interesting.

To submit your book, please go to our
ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you doing this?
To expose as many people to as many other people’s poetry as possible.

Why isn’t this a one-one exchange like the Great Poetry Exchange?
The immediate accessibility of the internet, and zero costs for producing e-books makes this a much more attractive opportunity for an immediate larger audience for your books. We don’t want to limit your potential readers to other producers of e-books, nor to one other person.

Why does the e-book have to be written by me?
Unlike the Great Poetry Exchange, were one can participate by pledging to send a book by someone else or an anthology they’ve edited, since e-books are not purchased physical entities, and because they will be available in unlimited quantities during the 24 hour period on December 1st, only you have the rights to your poetry. You can’t authorize the free distribution of someone else’s poetry, the rights of which you don’t own, to the world.

This sounds cool but I don’t have an e-book.
That’s not really a question, but anyway, why not make one? Do some basic design and layout of your poems in your favorite word processing program. Make a title page. Design a nice cover. Use any pictures you want. Turn it into an PDF. You’ve got an e-book. There’s no time like the present. Maybe you’ll take it to print later?

I participated last year and I want to submit the same book, can you just use the file and info you have already?
This creates more work for us and is a little more difficult for us to manage. It would really help out if you could click on the Online Submission Form so we can have everything in the same place, we’d appreciate it.

I’m concerned about my book being free for everyone on the planet.
Also not a question but we understand. Maybe this isn’t for you. Maybe you sell e-books on your website and don’t want to give unlimited copies of one away over a 24 hour period. Hey, it’s cool.

Are these really frequently asked questions?
Actually no, all these were written before we received any questions, imagining what some of the questions might be.

WoW! Women-on-Writing: Feature Article Submissions

4 November 2016
Our submission period is now open and not confined to an e-zine issue’s publication schedule. We will be publishing a new feature article every week/two weeks and highlighting it in a newsletter like this one. If you have a good idea for an article and it’s a topic we haven’t covered before (if you’re in doubt, just shoot us a quick question in an email), we would love to hear from you.
Word count would be whatever you need to cover the topic, but typically between 1,000 to 1,800 words.
Pay is arranged between the writer and editor for the piece, but most articles pay $50 or $75. In-depth pieces that require many different sources to cover the topic and have a higher word count may pay more. Pay is by PayPal only.
Query: Please send your query to submissions@wow-womenonwriting.com, and be sure to include your bio and links to any relevant clips of your writing.

Visit the website: http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com/articles.php

Please note: we try to respond to all queries, but due to overwhelming response, if you do not hear back from us, it is most likely that your query did not suit our needs at this time.

Wow! Women-on-Writing is Seeking Bloggers for The Muffin

4 November 2016
If you’re a blogger and a WOW! subscriber, you may be the perfect fit for this position!
We are looking for a writer who is motivated and active in the writing community. Someone who isn’t afraid to share her personal experiences in the writing/publishing industry and wants to help fellow writers.
Posts are roughly 500 words, and can be about anything you’d like to write about, as long as it’s helpful to writers.
Some of the topics we cover are:
– How-tos on a variety of writing topics (how to query, how to craft a character, etc)
– In the trenches stories (your experiences or other writers’ experiences in the publishing industry, as a freelancer, etc)
– Inspirational writing advice or reading (no straight book reviews unless it’s tied in to a writing lesson)
– Interviews with authors/agents/editors/publishers (these types of posts are usually assigned and pay more)
– Author platform and book marketing advice
– Listicles related to writing
– Balancing life and writing
– Event coverage (writing conferences, festivals, literary events)
– Market profiles (how to write for a paying magazine or website)
& more! 

How it works: If you are chosen, you will be added to a Google calendar and entered into the blog’s posting rotation. You are responsible for writing, proofreading, choosing an image, and scheduling your post to publish on the day that you are assigned. We publish in the early morning, typically between 12:30am and 4am PST, and that’s why we call it The Muffin. The Muffin is meant to be read with your morning coffee, tea, or juice. 🙂 At the end of the month, you’d send an invoice via PayPal for all the posts you’ve written during the month. Please note, we do not issue checks any longer. The Muffin pays $10 per post you come up with yourself, and more for special assignments like interviews ($15-$40, depending on the interviewee) or assigned book reviews ($20). All posts are roughly around 500 words, give or take, but interviews tend to run longer.

The Muffin has roughly 36,000+ pageviews a month, over 1,000 email subscribers and a few hundred blogger followers. We promote posts heavily on our social networks (Facebook & Twitter), as well as in our email newsletters that go out to subscribers to our main site (WOW! Women On Writing, over 38,000 email subscribers).

Apply: If you’d like to join our team, focus on your writing career, and help other writers, please e-mail us at muffinblogger@wow-womenonwriting.com (both blog manager Marcia Peterson, and publisher Angela Mackintosh will receive the application).
– Tell us why you’d like to write for The Muffin and where you are headed with your writing career.
– Please include samples of blog posts you’ve written, your current bio, and provide us with a few possible headlines of posts you’d like to write.

NOTE: If you are interested, please apply ASAP. We posted this call on Sunday on The Muffin and already have received many wonderful applications from qualified candidates. We will most likely make a decision this week!

We look forward to hearing from you!
