Description: Open to all writers of historical fiction. Submit stories of serendipitous experiences while writing and publishing historical fiction. I am looking for coincidental tales to be included in a forthcoming online article for the Historical Novel Society: “Stories of Serendipity: Writing Historical Fiction”. The interactive column will post on the HNS main website sometime late summer/early fall 2013. The article will showcase a collection of authors’ stories, while exploring possible reasons behind such wondrous occurrences.
For good story examples please visit these links:
- Maryanne O’Hara’s novel: CASCADE
- Erika Mailman’s novel: THE WITCHES TRINITY
- Essie Fox’s novel: THE SOMMAMBULIST
To Submit: Answer the two prompts below. Open word count, but 400 words or less is suggested. Email your stories/explanations to email@example.com and specify your name, novel, and return email contact address.
- Please share your story of serendipity related to a historical novel you are writing or have written.
- How do you explain such coincidences?
Note: I will contact all writers who submit stories, letting you know if your story will be included or otherwise. I will contact each person by email no later than July 18th, 2013.
Further questions please contact me/Stephanie Renée dos Santos: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you for submitting and sharing your magical writing moments!
