Flax calls bloggers for submissions...

Just wanted to plug the latest call for submissions from Flax Books, which is based in Lancaster. It's an interesting one. They are looking for non-fiction writers or bloggers from the North West of England. Flax 019 will be an online anthology of creative non-fiction... I'm not sure how this will turn out, but it has huge scope.

Having worked with Flax, I know what a great opportunity this is. A chance for work to be published, but also have a profile on their site, professional photos taken, digital recording of you reading from your work, a launch, and a whole lot of publicity (which when I was involved meant some beautiful postcards being printed, and a whole internet noise about the anthology), plus the chance for a life coaching session.

They are asking for up to 1000 words, which could be one blog post, or several... but which have not appeared on your blog so far. I'm not going to tell you all the ins and outs of it all, you can read that yourself at the Litfest/Flax website

North West bloggers I would love to see in this anthology are wide reaching, but include:

The brilliant, political, literary, confessional Max Dunbar

Chris Killen and his quirky blog Day of Moustaches (which seems to currently be called 'oh no')

The writer of the wonderfully insightful blog My Shitty Twenties

Elizabeth Baines with her analytical, discursive blog Fiction Bitch

Now, that would be my kind of anthology...
