Most Memorable Fishing or Hunting Trip Submission Information and Guidelines:

We are looking for stories that have not been previously published either electronically or in print. While authors will retain the rights to their work, we will be asking for exclusive print rights for the 90 days after the anthology's release. As always, established writers are welcome and we encourage emerging and new writers to take the opportunity to submit.

Stories should be between 800-2500 words. Since this is also a colour print anthology, submissions must include photos (that you have the rights to) that complement the story. 

Writers selected for an anthology will receive $0.04 per word for their chosen work (maximum $100 per story) and a free copy of the book.

Please submit your work via e-mail to in a .doc or .docx format. Please state in the subject line that this is an anthology submission. 

In your e-mail, please state your name and address. A biography isn't necessary but a short blurb about yourself or why you wrote the story is acceptable. If you are under the age of 19, please let us know in your submission email. This will have no effect on the evaluation of the work, it is purely for contract purposes.  

Entries must be received by 11:59 PM Newfoundland Standard time on May 31, 2024.
