Project 42 Stories Update


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

Submissions are coming in strong. 

As a reminder, replies will be sent when possible


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 2018 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:

TBA

I will set time here and there to answer emails. 

Please look for updates on the 42 Stories Facebook Page, 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 400 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

Reminder of rules: Write a 42-word story with a beginning, middle, and end, a 42-character bio, and enter one of the categories below.

  1. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.

  2. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.
