Bylines 2013 Writers Desk Calendar Seeks Writers

on February 2, 2012

Bylines is seeking writer contributions for their 2013 Desk Calendar. I was one of the writers included in the 2010 Writers Byline Desk Calendar and it was great fun! Here is the cover from the year I was included:

If you are interested, here are the submission guidelines:

Submission Guidelines

We’re looking for succinct personal stories about the writing life. The oh-wow success tales, the naked truth about what motivates you, the heartache of rejection, the toughest lessons, the joy and pain of freelancing. Humor is good. Please avoid routine, trite, ordinary stories. Read the many insightful submissions in the current Bylines and you’ll see what we mean. We strongly urge you to read these entries so you understand what we’re looking for. Click on the links below for three examples of entries from previous Bylines.
