A Common Bond II: An ASAP Anthology

ASAP needs your help filling our next anthology - A Common Bond II.

From now until December 1st, we are accepting original poetry, fiction, and nonfiction submissions from all alumni who have participated in a writing class or workshop with ASAP. Select your best work, or write something completely new - the choice is yours! Either way, you will be helping us proliferate the stories of our veterans, service members, and military families with the broader public upon publication in May 2019. Please keep in mind that submissions are not guaranteed a place in the anthology; however, our editing team will work with authors to include as many pieces as possible.

Read on for submission guidelines, and contact val@asapasap.org with any questions. We can't wait to read your poems, short stories, and memoir scenes!
