Send Us Your Simple Little Words Short Story Now!

We’d love to hear from you.

Send each submission in the body of the e-mail instead of as an
attachment. Submit only one story per e-mail. Please refer to
Simple Little Words in the subject line.

Send us 500 to 1,500 words explaining how someone’s simple
little words touched your life forever. Use the chapters in this

don’t bother with fancy formatting, photos, or graphics.

At the top of the first page of your story, include the date, your

phone, e-mail address, and fax number if available. Also
provide a title for your submission and total word count. That
would really help us out.
