2021 Southern Stories Anthology

Do you want to become a Published Author?


WOW! Publishing invites new or emerging writers to submit short memoirs to our Southern Stories Anthology. A panel of published southern authors will review stories. The opening submission date is May 20, 2021 and closure is on June 20, 2021



The Southern Stories Anthology was born out of the RWS Writers Weekend. Weekend Participants who shared drafts of their stories, or began working on their stories during the RWS Weekend, were invited to submit short personal stories (or excerpts from their memoirs) to the anthology.


Published annually, the Anthology is limited to no more than 20 stories and begins with a call for submissions each spring. While authors may reside in different parts of the country, they are asked to only submit stories specific to the south or their southern experience.
