Call For Writers & Articles

It’s that time again. We are looking for professional authors, poets, editors, and publishers to write articles that weigh in on the latest topics that affect the literary industry today. We are looking for articles for Volume IV of the Torrid Literature Journal. This journal will be made available to the public online and in print October 1, 2012. In the past, several extraordinary and diverse literary professionals (Valerie Douglas, Oneal Walters, C.S. Splitter, Tricia Kristufek) have blessed our readers by providing in depth articles on various topics. We look forward to working with more literary professionals in the future. If you are interested, please send an email to our editor, Alice Saunders, at asaunders@torridliterature.com.

Several topics of interest: 

1) Writing Your First Manuscript: Common Mistakes to Avoid

 2) How to market your book professionally and effectively

 3) Publishing Scams: Warnings Signs to Look Out For

 This list is not exclusive. If you have another topic you would like to write on, please send contact me. We can become an even bigger blessing when we work together.
