Local publishing group launches search for submissions

Peregrin Publishing is calling for submissions for Escape, an anthology to be published in Spring, 2012

Peregrin Publishing is calling for submissions for Escape, an anthology to be published in Spring, 2012.

What does the title mean?

Almost all of us have wanted to escape from something or to something.

Some people long to walk to the edge of the world.

Some people long to escape from the edge.

Some people long to escape gravity, others are escape artists.

Maybe there’s a party, or an exam, or a job, or even a conversation you wanted to escape.

Perhaps you witnessed an escape.

Whatever escape means to you, we’d like to read about it.

Based in Campbell River, Peregrin Publishing is a new company made up of six individuals who have been involved in the arts for many years.

Among them are writers, editors and graphic artists, who share a vision to publish and promote writing that will add significantly to the provincial, national and international literary landscapes, with an emphasis on the works of writers living on North Vancouver Island (north of the Oyster River) and the adjacent islands.

Genres accepted for the anthology include: fiction, non-fiction, and illustrated stories up to 5,000 words; poetry, up to five poems.

Submissions for Escape may be sent via e-mail or snail mail. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 3.

Visit their website www.peregrinpublishing.ca to view their complete submission guidelines.
