Anthology

By: Haley Lynch

Denobis is a writing club that does creative writing and journalism. For this year we decided to bring back the anthology.  We wanted to help writers to showcase their work and get published.

WHAT IS AN ANTHOLOGY?

The dictionary definition of an Anthology is a book or other collection of selected writings by various authors. An anthology can be anything from an assortment of different writing mediums such as short stories, novel excerpts, poems, or the same author’s writing materials.

WHAT IS OUR ANTHOLOGY GOING TO BE LIKE?

Our anthology’s name this year is Daydreamers. The stories that you could submit do not have to go along with the title. Our theme (that doesn’t have to be followed) is escapism.

WHAT CAN BE IN THE ANTHOLOGY?

A lot of things can go into the anthology if it is school appropriate. We will accept a whole range of items such as poems, short stories, excerpts from your novels, scripts and more. They just have to be six pages or less. We prefer not to publish essays that you’ve written for English unless it is exceptional.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY WORK TO THE ANTHOLOGY?

After writing your anthology submission you should go to the TCP Moodle page and enrol in the Denobis course. Then you should go to the announcements section and then click on the Anthology Submissions link. After that, you can submit your work. We would prefer it to be a word document that isn’t a shared link but is uploaded. If you want your work to be anonymous make sure you say so at the top of your submitted work.

WILL I GET ANYTHING?

Once you’ve submitted your work and it has been approved for publishing your teacher will give you extra credit. Please discuss with your teacher the value of the extra credit.

We hope to see your work.

Thank you

The Denobis Club.
