Project 42 Stories Update


The 42 Stories Project: 42 categories of 42 42-word stories was launched in July 2018. 

Submissions are coming in strong. 

As a reminder, replies will be sent December 2018


There's got to be a reason . . .

A month after the launch, one of the most competitive graduate programs for my major unexpectedly accepted my application and offered me early entry with a partial scholarship. 

Here's a hint to where that online program is located:



Classes started last August and they take most of my time. 

I'm set to graduate December 2019. For now, I will dedicate a few months to the 42 Stories project. 

Replies will be sent:

December 2018

April 2019

August 2019

TBA

I will set time here and there to answer emails. 

Please look for updates on the 42 Stories Facebook Page, Instagram, Medium Blog, Duotrope, and Google the 42 Stories Anthology.
We have a full staff, except artists. Please email me if you're interested in doing cover art for each chapter and the front and back of the anthology.

We have about 300 submissions and need a little over triple that (1,764), so please ask your fellow writer friends to send a 42-word story our way. Acceptances rates are high for now
