Call for stories

Anthologies are a great way to get published. They usually don't pay a lot, but they can help build your case with a publisher when you're trying to sell a book-length work.

Don't know if anybody at this blog is much into golf, fishing, surfing or weddings, but....
Casagrande Press is seeking golfing, fishing, surfing, and wedding stories for four upcoming anthologies. (Golf's Greatest Misadventures , Fishing's Greatest Misadventures, Surfing's Greatest Misadventures Vol. 2, and Weddings' Greatest Misadventures) The press is looking for nonfiction, first-person misadventure stories such as those involving bad judgment calls, pranks, comical/ironic episodes, disaster, animal attacks, misfortune, injury, loss of wit, panic, temper flare-ups, rough weather, critical conditions, trip or game meltdowns, everyday fears, bizarre injuries, etc. The editors are looking for well-written stories that tell a good tale, reflect a culture, and develop character depth while maintaining a tight narrative tension. There is no fee to submit a story. Writers paid upon publication. Submit online at Deadlines vary for each book.
