New Places To Submit.

Sorry I haven’t updated my Open Submissions page in so long. The good news is that I have updated it now.

Here are the new places to submit your stories to that I added:

1) White Ribbon Writing Competition – Australia Only.

The competition is a vehicle for positive change. The competition’s aim is to raise awareness through a deeper understanding of the written personal experience.
