Arts and Entertainment
Each approved chapter submission should include the following:
We are firm in the belief that when God gives you a message, you need to share what God gives you. As needed, we will clean up grammatical issues or anything that is potentially confusing to the reader. We will do minor rewrites (or more extensive ones if needed) for clarity and flow. Although the final wording will be at the discretion of the publisher, rest assured it is not our intent to change your message. Write what God gives you.
2017-2018 Dates to remember…
A few more things to remember:
Do not email any content for the book, unless Dell specifically requests it that way. Do not send Drop Box links, ZIP files, or anything else. Everything related to the anthology should be sent using the STMPub.net website under the Member Services tab.
I can hardly wait to see what God has laid on the heart of each of you. I’m looking forward to the finished product.
