Ten Best Short Stories 2011

Do you think you have written a story that could be one of the best written by any one this year? Then read this call for submissions.

It is our belief that the short story form has been unjustly neglected for many decades.
Therefore, Creative Print Publishing is preparing to publish a collection of short stories written in English. There will be TEN stories in the collection.
Creative Print Publishing Ltd is a British-based publishing house that promotes and markets books in more than 90 countries. We believe that the short story has been unjustly neglected and this collection of the ten best for the year is our way of trying to rectify that situation.
Authors are invited to submit short stories for our book, to be published in Autumn 2011 under the Creative Print Publishing imprint. The ten best authors and their story will be chosen.

The ten authors chosen for the anthology can help us to go some way to bring the short story back to public notice. All genres are acceptable. The important criterion is merit. Tell a good story and keep readers interested.
This is not a competition with prizes. There is no entry fee. Only stories of genuine merit will be chosen for publication. You could be one of the ten best writers chosen.
Copyright of stories remains with the chosen ten authors. The ten writers who are chosen for inclusion will receive a contract of agreement and free copies of the published book. The volume will be promoted and marketed with vigour in more than 90 countries. More about promotion and marketing of all our titles can be found on the website.
