The following has been copied from the 100 Stories for Haiti post put up by Greg McQueen (whose brilliant idea this is). If you have a story to donate (or expertise in the editing world and you'd like to help out) please use the contact email address below.
It’s simple …
You have until MONDAY, JANUARY 25th, 2010 (MIDNIGHT, CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME) to submit a short story.
ANY GENRE. ORIGINAL WORK. PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED (PREFERRED, BUT NOT REQUIRED). 1000 WORDS (OR LESS).
Please use your common sense! The work must be yours. Please don’t waste time by sending stories you don’t own.
No stories with graphic violence, or mass death and destruction. We want stories we a lot of HEART, a dash of COMPASSION, and unmeasurable amounts of HOPE.
The editorial team will choose 100 stories from the submissions for inclusion in the ebook.
Cut & Paste your story into the body of the email. Write “SUBMISSION” in the subject line of the email. Include YOUR FULL CONTACT DETAILS — treat this the same way as submitting to any magazine or publication.
SEND STORIES TO: email@example.com
And that's it! Please help us to help the people of Haiti. For more information on this project, visit this site: 100 Stories for Haiti
