Authorology Anthology Contest

Each year we host a short story anthology contest for authors at all levels of the craft with rewards and celebration the following February. In 2020, our theme was A Journey Into the Fantastical and the stories range from comedic, to a little worrisome and on to heartwarming. The key was to provide something mystical or fantastic and our winners delivered.


Join us as we celebrate the release and winners at our Annual Gala on March 27th, 7pm CST. Click the Gala 2021 tab for details.
