Call for Submissions: WANL’s Winter E-Zine

Celebrate Winter Traditions with a WRITING contest from WANL!

As we did in 2021, we’re celebrating the holidays this year by toasting to our local authors! To commemorate the busy holiday season – with Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, the New Year, and more – we want to read YOUR stories!

Our 2022 theme is open to many interpretations – holidays, winter, family traditions and celebrations, and more.
We accept fiction, non-fiction, prose, poetry – all formats are welcome for submission.

The top submissions will be compiled into a holiday/winter-themed e-zine, to be distributed electronically to WANL’s membership base – now boasting over 450 members… That’s almost 1,000 eyes reading your work!
