How to Submit Your Writing to the Sundial Writers Corner
Think out loud! Write for the ear, rather than for the eye. Dialogue usually doesn’t work as well as straight commentary.
Think short! Unfortunately, attention spans tend to drop off after about three minutes of spoken word. Time yourself at home before submitting your prose or poetry.
Think Personal! Family stories, remembrances, personal adventures can all provide good writing material. No political views will be accepted.
Please email us your submission to email@example.com.
Writings can also be submitted the old fashioned way. Our address is-
