The West Pacifican: Writers' Corner Submissions

Recommended Posts

Do you like creative writing? Would you like your writing to be considered for publication in The West Pacifican?

Consider submitting to the Writers' Corner. 

 

The Writers' Corner is a feature I started in the May issue to showcase the creative writing of our region and to further build our culture of participation and creativity. We will happily consider any form of creative writing: short essays, short stories, poems, RP-based writing. 

Please use this Google form to submit writings: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdeVyKlr-RPmepyu3Nlkh5la-pxZod_MW5yGWoAhxGOFT91JA/viewform

 

Parameters:
1. For short stories or essays, 400 - 900 words.

2. For poetry, maximum of two (2) poems for most styles and maximum of four (4) haiku will be considered per issue, not to exceed 500 words.

3. Please re-use this form for every submission. Note that while there is no limit to submissions, our goal is to publish as many authors in TWP as possible.

4. Depending on volume of submissions, we will aim to notify you of selection for publication two weeks before The West Pacifican goes to print. The West Pacifican is published on the first Friday of each month. We the staff will also consider publishing accepted submissions on our offsite forum: https://www.westpacific.org/forums/index.php?/forum/60-the-west-pacifican/

5. No NSFW language or concepts. Writing should be thoughtful and tasteful out of respect to our diverse range of players and perspectives. We endorse and adhere to the Protecting our Players Accord.

It is recommended that you complete your writing in Microsoft Word, then copy/paste into the form to avoid losing your work.

For any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact me on Discord at Fuentana#3423.

Here's a prompt if it helps:

Where or how are you finding meaning during this crisis? Writings may deploy poetry or prose in response. As you ponder the question consider some of the following:

  • Persons: what have friends, family members, strangers said or done to render care and support? Have you read about or learned about any heroic figures in your local community or beyond? 
  • Places: is there a special space in your home or neighborhood (if safe) that you've turned to?
  • Practices: are there any daily rituals or regular practices that have helped you? This can range from cooking to watching The Office to prayer or meditation to art.
