The Writing Journey, fresh off of publishing Masks, Facades, and Reveals (aka Anthology 17), is announcing its 2021 anthology project that will be kicking off very shortly: A Book of Threes.
This project will be open to all PG-13 genres, welcoming stories (3000 word limit), flash fiction pieces (1000 word limit), and poems (1000 word limit) that tightly integrate with the theme of three. In literature, there are many stories that do this, starting with the children’s stories (three little pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears) and going into fairy tales, adventure yarns (The Three Musketeers) and even elements of major novels.
Those interested should sign up here.
Hot on the heels of Near Myths (2017), Reasons for Hope (2018), and The Love Anthology (coming very soon in 2019), is the call for stories, flash fiction and poetry for the 2019 Writing Journey Anthology: Stranded. This is the latest anthology project for the Writing Journey.
Have you ever been stranded at an airport? Imagined yourself stranded on Mars? Or on a desert island? Or at a cocktail party? Or perhaps at a department store while your significant other is shopping? We will explore the theme of being stranded through stories, flash fiction and poems that cut across genres.
The kick-off is January 19th and first drafts are due February 23rd.

Human is an anthology of short stories and poems exploring the human condition, social mores and normative behaviors.
What does it mean to be Human? Scientists, psychologists, theologians and others have asked this question since the beginning. In this anthology, The Writing Journey offers a collection of creative reflections on the ever-changing prism we call the human experience. What are the edges of being human? These stories and poems plumb those boundaries, some with the lightness of ironic humor and some with the heavy despair of reality. Enjoy these writers as they explore the many facets of love, family, friendship, growing up, growing old, death and dying, our fears, our needs, our alienations, and our aspirations. Or can we define human at the edges of our relationships between and among species, humans and technology?
The Writing Journey is publishing online this collection of flash fiction stories and poems, edited by Tim Yao, Mary O’Brien Glatz and Melinda Borucki and featuring stories and poems by Tanasha Martin, Arah Ko, Mary O’Brien Glatz, Todd Hogan, Elaine Fisher, Tim Yao, Keshia Nowden, Melinda Borucki, Ana Koulouris, Ed Pongklub, and Stephanie Ewing. An e-book form of the anthology will be made available this spring.
