Deadline Approaching for South Philly Fiction submissions!

Tax day is just around the corner, and with it the submission deadline for South Philly Fiction, a collection of stories highlighting South Philadelphia as a source of literary inspiration. Get your piece finished or pull a tale out of your archives and send it over to Don Ron Books.

All stories must be written by authors who are from, have lived in, or currently live in the Philadelphia area. Submitted stories must be substantially set in South Philadelphia. That's pretty much the only requirement. Fiction only, no poetry. Unpublished and unknown writers welcome; any genre, no language restrictions. Previously published stories are okay with permission to republish. There is no fee for submission.

Stories should be sent by April 15, 2010 to

Write: “SPF, your last name, story name” in the subject line (e.g., “SPF, Franklin, Poor Richards Almanac”). Provide your name, address, phone number, and email, and enclose a brief bio that includes your affiliation with the city of brotherly love. Authors whose stories are selected will be expected to work with editors to fine tune their submissions. Selected authors will receive $20 and a copy of the published book. Don Ron Books reserves the rights to republish the stories in subsequent reprints, authors otherwise retain rights to their works. ee for more details.

We look forward to reading your stuff. Good luck with that tax stuff too.
