Blog Submissions

Want to post your writing to the blog? Submit your work! I’m always looking for contributors!

I’m looking for fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.
Your piece should:

  • Be 1,000 words or less.
  • Be a complete piece. Please do no submit excerpts, serials or chapters.
  • Be school appropriate.

A note about School Appropriate: Unfortunately it’s hard to say exactly what is or is not. A good rule of thumb is to imagine yourself reading the story out loud to a school assembly with students, teachers, and administrators. Would it be appropriate for that kind of setting? In general, pieces for the blog should not be explicitly gory, political, religious, or intimate. But, I’m always happy to look at a piece and we can work on it and talk about it together. It’s very individual.

You must be a Creative Writing Club member to submit pieces to post on the blog.

Pieces will be posted in the order they are received.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Emery.

Submit your piece below!

Have you ever written a six word memoir? What about a 25 word story? How about a haiku?

Being concise and making each word count is just as important as writing a 300 page novel. Show off your short fiction skills! Submit your short fiction and short poetry and we will tweet your writing!

  1. What do you mean by “complete”? You have to tell a whole story in only 500 words?

  2. How do I submit an entry? I want to write a poem πŸ˜€

    • Hey Valerie,
      If you have a poem for NaPoWriMo you can post it to the comments of the blog post. To submit a piece to be posted on the blog, you need to be a member of the creative writing club, and fill out the form on this page.
      If you still have questions, let me know.
      Mrs. Emery

  3. Wait, so if I submit a short story, it can only be 250-400 words? I’m working on the first prompt in the last email, but I think it may end up a lot longer than that.

    • Caleb,
      If you submit something to the blog it needs to be 250-500 words. The pieces you write for the summer prompts can be as long as you want.

  4. What about a poem that is shorter than 250 words? Is that ok?

  5. I am confused, I just submitted my poem in under (summarize your piece in one sentence) because it kept seeming like you’re supposed to be submitting on the form but I didn’t see the place to put my poem.

  6. When I fill out this form, will you email me and ask me to give my piece to you? Or do you give you piece here?

  7. So, I couldn’t do an excerpt (or part of a chapter, really) to the blog… I can only do that at the meetings….? The part that I wanted to submit was only about 400 words… 409, I think. So, can I submit part of that chapter? Or it HAS to be an entire story in 500 words?

  8. Hi,It’s Logan. I haven’t been on here in forever. Can I still submit writing on here anyway. Or am I not considered a member anymore?

    • Hey Logan,
      You have to apply every year for membership to clubs. If you’d like to be a member this year, click on this link to fill out the application.

  9. Am I able to post my whole novel on here for other people to read, or just excerpts/chapters, or nothing at all?
    Also, I finished NaNoWriMo! My Word Count Goal was 7,500 words and my whole novel is 8,198 words with 24 pages and 8 chapters.
    This is the first time I did NaNoWriMo, and I won! I was pretty excited when I passed my Word Count Goal. Now I just want to edit my novel, and see if I can get it published.

    • Congrats Zoe! Unfortunately we can’t post everyone’s novels. However if you have a complete piece that’s 1,000 words or less, you’re welcome to submit it to post it on the blog.

  10. I think that my story is about 700+ words, give or take, but when is it due, and it can’t go over 1,000 words?

  11. Is there anywhere where you can post a longer story or just a chapter?

  12. Is there a specific place to submit suggestions for prompts? Or do we not do that?

  13. Mrs. Emery, it’s Sofia, and I sent you a peice. It’s my first blog post, and I’m not sure. I sent in a peice, and wrote all that was required. Do you email me for the peice? Thank you,
    Sofia Cabrera

  14. Sebastian Williams

    My story is over 5,000 words long. Where can i submit it?

    • Hey Sebastian, for the blog stories should be 1,000 words or less. If you’d like some feedback, you can email me your story. Or, in January we’ll have our short story workshop coming up. Let me know if you have any questions.

  15. Mrs. Emery, what if sometimes I don’t want to post it on the blog, but I need to have some feedback on it? I’m writing a story, (I like to call it my ‘Daily Story’) that I write everyday, just to get some writing in daily. Where can I get some feedback for it, because hopefully someday I may make it an actual book!
    Thank you,
    Sofia Cabrera. πŸ™‚

    • Hey Sofia, You can make use of the editorial board of you’d like feedback but don’t want to post it on the blog. You can submit a larger chunk for feedback from an editor. Let me know if you still have questions.

    • Okay, thank you Mrs. Emery for letting me know! πŸ™‚

  16. How do I write something that could be tweeted?

  17. Hello! This is Kaylyn Devane, I just realized I haven’t attended a club meeting since December 2017. I’m not sure if I’m still a member after missing so many meetings? I received a meeting recap email today that stated students must attend one meeting or post one blog comment each month to remain a member. I wanted to apologize for losing track of my absences and see what I can do at this point to remain a member since the upcoming meeting isn’t until March 8.

  18. Hi i am new and i would like to know how i would add a piece of poetry?

    • Hi, Shae! Welcome to the club! πŸ™‚ To submit a piece, just fill out the form above, click the submit button at the bottom of the form, then at least tomorrow or in a few days, Mrs. Emery will email you for the piece. I hope to see it soon, and good luck! Again, welcome to the club!
      ❀ πŸ˜€
