Calling for submissions from hometowns in Texas and surrounding worlds

for our inaugural printing of

An Honest Lie

Theme: Encouraging the delinquency of your Inner Child

We are accepting submissions in the areas of fiction, stream of thought essays, well written misadventures from real life, and blatant lies that are fun and entertaining..

We’re looking for …

… the ironies in life

… the serendipity of it all

… the epitome of adventure

… the power of imperviousness

… the pull of naivety

… the view from a different angle

… the mix of mood, moment, and movement

… the wretched truth

… a clever lie

… the humor inside

… the mockery of it all

… the unique perspective of childhood.

(Please don’t confuse this with children’s stories or stories involving children.)

We’re looking for the perspective.

The subject is up to you.

(Please keep it clean.

No political commentaries, testimonials, “my life” stories, or poems.)
