Short Story Anthology 2019

Blue Bracken Publishing is proud to announce a new initiative for 2019:

A multilingual short story anthology.

You are kindly invited to contribute your short story. All forms of short stories are welcome and will be considered. However, to make this year’s project somewhat more challenging, we have chosen to publish only short stories on a particular theme in this anthology.

The theme for 2019 is HUMANITY.

Please note: The word “Humanity” may be understood in multiple ways and in the broad sense of the word.

Entries for our Short Story Anthology 2019
