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 30th and closure is on August 30th. 



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.


The Anthology is now published annually. No more than 20 stories are selected for publication in the Anthology, and the deadline for submission is May 30th of each year.  A Call for Submissions will be published during the spring.  Submission guidelines will also be published on the website. Stories must be specific writers’ southern experiences. While writers may reside in different parts of the country, they are asked only to submit stories specific to the south.


Submission Guidelines will be published on May 30, 2020.
