The Florida Writers Association (FWA) is now taking submissions for The First Step: Florida Writers Association Collection, Volume 6.
This annual assemblage of 60 short pieces written by FWA members and
submitted electronically is published by FWA and marketed across the
nation. Each year presents a new theme and new Person of Renown, who for
2014 is NYT bestselling author Mary Burton. The First Step is
about any first step in any venture—learning how to walk, entering
college, starting a new job, the first step you took when you learned
your loved one was an alcoholic. Submissions may be fiction, nonfiction,
creative nonfiction, poetry—virtually any genre. Full guidelines are
posted on the FWA website, floriseedawriters.net.
