Stories Wanted

If you need stories to add to a book you're working on, you can advertise your need (for free) on DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com; http://ParaPub.com. Here are the listings in the current (free) e-zine issue.

I like writers to help other writers.

Also, notice the kinds of books people are working on. What kind of book would you like to write?


NEED STORIES to flesh-out your book? List your wants here. Focus on a
single topic and provide your contact information. Write tight: limit your listing to 100 words. Conform to the format so we can Copy\Paste and do not have to edit. Send your listing to DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com Put “Stories Wanted” in the Subject line of your email. There is no charge for listings.

WANT TO CONTRIBUTE YOUR STORY? Contact requesters directly. Do not send stories, etc. to Dan.
