Whip out your pens (or typing fingers): we are looking for submissions for a Paris-themed anthology.

Call for Submissions: Life, Love, and Sarcasm in Paris

An anthology of funny, crazy and heartwarming stories about Paris, available in paperback and ebook. Each entry should be 1,000-3,000 words, but exceptions can be made for exceptional pieces.

Approximately 35 writers will be featured in this anthology, providing a range of voices for the reader to discover and a chance for you, the author, to increase your exposure and get published. A brief author bio will be included after your piece.

All stories must be about traveling to or living in Paris. They can be fiction or non-fiction. They can be positive or negative, funny or touching. The only thing they can't be is boring. Email your submission as a .doc attachment to

Deadline for entries is October 31, 2014. The launch date is tentatively March 1, 2015.

Anthologies are a great way for readers to discover new authors and for authors to get more work published in a shorter amount of time. Win-win!

If you want to add a(nother) book to your author shelf, submit today! Or, well, as soon as you're done writing it.
