Be a quiet rebel

Write for us

A summer fiction anthology for 2019

tick that item off your bucket list.  become a published author in 2019.

Being a published author is a common bucket list item.  Many people dream of having their name and their words in print but few go on to realise their dream.  Stories remain unwritten and wisdom is hidden inside rather than gifted to the world.

Don’t let your dreams die. Don’t hide your words and your stories.  Be brave and shine brightly.

Holding a book that contains your name and your words —words written from the heart — is deeply satisfying.  It’s a rite of passage; moving from ‘I’ll be published one day’ to ‘I’ve done it!’.

The accomplishment of being a published author brings confidence and it’s a major achievement to put on your CV or resumé.  If you have your own business, being a published author adds authority to your brand.

Writing can bring up many fears and it’s daunting when you need to produce 50,000+ words for a book.  It might seem like too big a dream to realise when you haven’t been published before.  Don’t worry! There’s a way for you to become a published author without the stress and without the large wordcount.

Be part of an exciting new book

In July, the Quiet Rebel Bureau is  publishing A Summer to Remember, a fictional anthology by mind-body-spirit writers.  It’s a lighthearted collection of short stories to entertain, amuse and delight your imagination between summer adventures.

And we need you to help us bring this book to life.

We are looking for creative writers who dream of being published this year and would like to be part of our success.

Your contribution will not only give you the opportunity to be a published author in 2019 but you’ll also help a soulful, heartfelt small business to expand.  The Quiet Rebel Bureau wants to share the voices of those quiet writer rebels who have wisdom, humour, insight and stories to give through the written word.  We will help Mind-Body-Spirit and Self-Help authors shine their soul-light in the world while taking the stress out of publishing.

Let us tell you more

It’s an anthology – a collection of work.  This means the word count is much more doable (up to 2,500 words).  Not only will you have your short story published but you’ll also have a paragraph to promote yourself and your business.

All entries must be a short story about a memorable summer. Let your mind roam free. We’re looking for all genres of fiction save horror (fantasy, science fiction, paranormal, urban fantasy romance, etc).

You can submit a short story up to 2,500 words (minimum 1,000).  The theme is to entertain and capture the imagination of the reader.
