The Hard Work Begins

Welcome to the hard part! We are busy reading and reviewing submissions, and making decisions. Those decisions won’t come easy. We have all been on the side of the submitter and if it is one thing we know, it is the torturous wait after the deadline passes.

We hope to let you know as soon as we can.

With 800+ submissions, we cannot accept everyone. Though we have recieved many great stories and poems, that means disappointing some of you. While we would love to give feedback on everyone’s submissions, that would take time we are unable to provide at this juncture.

If you recieve a rejection we hope you keep writing and keep submitting! There will be a place for your story or poem.

Personally, I (Erica Marchant) have been there and have recieved 7 rejections this year so far. Never give up on your writing and your goals!

Thank you for giving us a chance and believing in our fledgling anthology. I’ve said it before, but we were amazed at the response to On Loss. And we wouldn’t be here right now without all your support.

We hope you stay tuned for the final product! Your continued support is invaluable. Please like our page at to stay up to date on our progress and the book launch!

We are so excited to begin the journey and can’t wait to launch the final book slated for March 2019 release. 

In the meantime, good luck. 

We are grateful for everyone who took the leap, gave us a chance and shared your work with us. You overwhelmed us with so many great submissions, and we have many tough decisions to make. Unfortunately, we cannot accept them all. The most important thing is to keep writing, keep submitting, keep doing what you do.

Sincerest thank you from the Anthology Team
