Mystery writers, join Writers Unite! for the third volume in our Anthology Series!
Submissions for Realm of Mystery will open on September 1, 2018, and closed on October 31, 2018.
You must be a member of the Facebook group Writers Unite! or a follower of this blog to enter. Click here to join WU!
The guidelines for the anthology and directions for the submissions port are found here.
Two crucial points:
- You MUST edit your entry prior to submission. We do a light edit on the stories before they are sent to the publisher but will not correct excessive errors. Those stories will be rejected.
- You MUST have the anthology’s theme as the focus of your story. Writers Unite! chose to do a main genre as opposed to specific themes so that authors had a broader scope to choose sub-genre of interest.
There is an art to short stories. The writer must condense a story into fewer words and also choose those words carefully. Writing a mystery short story has the added element of clues and foreshadowing that are difficult to develop within a few thousand words.
Starting on Monday Writers Unite! will offer a workshop on writing short stories and the mystery genre.
What is Mystery?
Mystery (pronounced mis-tuh-ree, ) is a genre of literature whose stories focus on a mysterious crime, situation or circumstance that needs to be solved. The term comes from the Latin mysterium, meaning “a secret thing.” stories can be either fictional or nonfictional, and can focus on both supernatural and non-supernatural topics. Many mystery stories involve what is called a “whodunit” scenario, meaning the mystery revolves around the uncovering a culprit or criminal.
Get writing!! Time to tell us “Who done it?”

Writers Unite! was created as a haven for the experienced and novice writer to come together to hone their skills and mentor each other. WU! has been committed to providing members resources to improve their craft through workshops, writing exercises, and informative articles, in addition to an interactive discussion about their writing issues.
In the spirit of providing experiences in all areas of writing, WU! created the Writers Unite! Anthology Series. The concept is for writers to write short stories or poetry of varying lengths on a topic and a collection of stories would be published.
WU! is pleased to announce our first anthology, The Realm of Fantasy will be published on August 1, 2018!
We have partnered with a publishing company, RhetAskew Publishing, to produce this inaugural volume in the series. The team at RhetAskew is amazing to work with and we are very excited to be working with them.
We will keep you posted on the progress of Realm of Fantasy and on future anthologies. Our next anthology topic will be romance, so keep checking, we will post information about the second anthology volume soon!
