Group-Writing Submissions

Dually Noted Submissions

An awkward young man approaches a beautiful woman. Is he going to confess his love through a poem? Does he have an important warning from the future? Or has he chosen his next victim? What happens next is up to you! 

Dually Noted is TBL’s exciting group-writing project. New and established writers from around the world come together to create one ongoing story through weekly installments. If you would like to add the next section, shoot us your 500-word addition by Friday night. Our editor will publish the best submission at the beginning of each week. Remember, we do not accept submissions that are not correctly formatted (see guidelines).

Dually Noted is now open for submissions! Deadline: Every Friday, Midnight PST

The theme of this project is: “Something Unexpected Found in a Playground Trashcan!”

Each 500-word section should be a complete story arc. Writers are free to submit stories of any genre, subject, or style (even poetry is welcome!), but submissions should adhere to the theme. Feel free to use your imagination and come up with interesting ways to incorporate this idea. Submissions are due Fridays at midnight PST. We’ll post the best submissions each Monday!

The Submission Process

How do I submit?

Simply click to submit below. Select “Dually Noted Group-Writing Project” in the submission manager, fill in your info, and attach your work. We ask that all new authors (who have yet to publish with us) please add a brief author bio in the cover letter section of their submissions (this allows us to expiate the publishing process should your work be selected). Submission to our Group-Writing Project are absolutely FREE!

When is the deadline?

The deadline for each submission is Friday night by midnight PST. Submissions sent after the deadline will not be considered.

How will I know if I’ve been selected for publication?

You will receive confirmation of your submission within 24 hours; however, only the winning author will be notified if her or her story is chosen. The addition will be published the following Monday.
