Greetings Wordsmiths,


Creative Colloquy would like to extend an invitation to Western Washington scribes to submit work for consideration into our fifth print collection, Creative Colloquy Volume Five.

Anticipated to launch early 2019. Creative Colloquy Volume Five will be much like our first four collections and include a diverse selection of prose, essays, poetry and literary works.


Deadline: Submissions will be accepted from August 1st, 2018 to October 31st, 2018 and must follow the guidelines provided below.


All genres and styles of work will be considered (except fan fiction and erotica). 

We are looking for submissions that are 1,000 to 3,000 words in length with a focus on the storytellers, i.e. fiction and essays in particular. Larger stories will be considered, within reason. Novel excerpts or independently published works will not be considered at this time. 

Poetry need not meet the 1,000 word length guideline but it should be noted we are not accepting poetry collections and will only consider two submissions from one author at a time. 

Please format stories using MS Word (.doc or .docx), 12pt, double spaced serif font. Formatting must follow this outline: http://www.writersdigest.com/tip-of-the-day/how-to-submit-short-stories-formatting-basics. Author contact info and bio should be submitted with piece in cover letter and should not be included on the document. 

Please only submit ONE piece of work for consideration.

You must be a resident of Western Washington to submit. Please note your geographic location in your cover letter. 

By submitting to Creative Colloquy, the author allows for publication into Creative Colloquy Volume Five. If included in our print edition we may contact author for future online reprint opportunities. 


We will contact all those who have submitted with news on whether the submission in question will be included in the publication by November 14th, 2018.


For any questions regarding publications and guidelines please email jackie.d.fender@gmail.com
