Publish Favorite Christmas Memories, But Hurry!

Get your favorite Christmas memory published in an anthology coming from my talented friend Gregory Kompes. It will be issued nest year by his Publishing Group (CPG).

They need original stories and essays from 250 to 2000 words about Christmas. Each submission will be reviewed and considered based on creativity, originality, concept, and style. Reading will be continuous and submissions will be considered as they arrive. Not all works will be accepted. There is NO entry or reading fee. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2009.

The Patchwork Path story collection titles are based on quilt blocks and the book covers have quilt and quilter themes. In addition to Christmas Stocking (to be published in the fall of 2010) other titles include Grandma's Choice (November 2008), Dad's Bowtie (June 2009), Friendship Star (November 2009), Treasure Box (2010), and Wedding Bouquet (2010). Additional titles are added each year.
