Saint Paul Almanac is accepting submissions for the 2012 edition
Every year the organization collects poetry, essays, reviews, recollections, reminiscences, short stories, and other fun things concerning our capital city. Although professional journalists and literary heavy-hitters such as Garrison Keillor have been known to send in pieces, budding writers, children, new immigrants, and senior citizens have also had their works accepted for print.
The requirements are simple: Submissions must be under 600 words total, the central theme of your piece must be tied to St. Paul, and pieces must be received by March 1. Works accepted for the 2012 Saint Paul Almanac will receive a small payment, as well as the thrill of seeing one's name in print.
Submissions can be sent to Kimberly Nightengale at email@example.com. For more writing prompts, additional guidelines, or more information, visit www.saintpaulalmanac.com.
