"That Not Forgotten"



A Call For Submissions

Poetry, Micro Prose, Short Fiction


The North Shore Series of Hidden Brook Press is currently seeking submissions from prose and poetry authors from the North Shore Series geographic area. 




The book's focus is to be a collection of work from writers with ties to an area along the north shore of Lake Ontario, from Kingston to Port Hope, north to #7 Highway.  The mission of the anthology is to paint, with an eclectic brush, reflections of, reaction to, hope within - pieces of ourselves found, pieces of ourselves lost here in this place. The book, more than thematically specific, will be a collage of voice and style from poets and prose writers, who either still or at some point in their lives, shared this place, this soil. The book's title will be "That Not Forgotten".

This anthology, with an emphasis on poetry, will also include micro-prose (300 words or less) and short fiction (1200 words or less). The broad and inclusive mission above will allow for as much interpretive diversity as possible. There is no specific theme.


Please Submit:  up to 5 poems and/or 

                                up to 5 pieces of micro-prose and/or

                                up to 3 pieces of short fiction for consideration
