Short Story Anthology
The current collection, entitled Draw Down the Moon, releases August 16, 2022. This collection has Romantic Love as its theme, and contains dark, humorous, quirky, and beautiful stories by over 40 writers. It is one of the largest collections we've assembled, which reflects the vast number of talented submissions received for this book. It was truly difficult to select the final stories for inclusion.

Our first poetry anthology is called Spheres and Canticles, and centers on a theme of wholeness, and coming full circle.
The anthology, containing the works of over 40 poets and illustrated with beautiful atmospheric images by two professional photographers and four artists, was carefully curated by our poetry editors, and will be released in the fall of 2022. Pre-orders available in our bookstore.
Submissions for our 2023 Poetry Anthology will open August 1, 2022 and close at the end of February, 2023. More information for interested poets and artists at the Submittable link above.
