Writing Group Accepting new members and submissions for new anthology


Local writing group accepting new members

Taking submissions for upcoming anthology, “Ticks and Quirks: Human Oddball Stories.”

Are you interested in science fiction? Fantasy? How about Horror? …. Then perhaps you might find your seat in the new writing group that is meeting once a month at Bob’s Bookstore in Charleston.  While the group is still pretty small, it has plenty of room for inspiring writers who enjoy such genres. They share ideas for writing topics, offer advice and even talk a bit about their lives – as we all know -life can be quite inspiring too!

Currently while the group is looking for new members, they have also inspired a new idea for an anthology titled, “Ticks and Quirks: Human Oddball Stories.” At their last meeting, they were speaking about some of the unique individuals whom they have crossed paths with as well as some interesting life experiences. After speaking for some time on the topic – they thought – how about we put together an anthology on these stories?!

Putting together a new anthology will be no problem – as the two who founded the writing group –local authors, Joshua Annis and Ariana R Cherry, have started their own publishing company, “Cherry House Press.” With the ideas and submissions from the help of the writing group and the experience of Cherry House Press, they will be able to print “Ticks and Quirks: Human Oddball Stories.” They will be taking submissions through September 15th.

If you are interested in joining the new writing group, “CIHFS Writers Group” (Central Illinois Horror/Fantasy/Sci-Fi) , or would like to share your story about a unique individual or life experience, come on over to Bob’s Book Store at 303 Lincoln Avenue in Charleston on Saturday August 25 at 7:00 pm .
