Calling all League of Utah Writers members!

We invite you to contribute to our upcoming anthology celebrating the theme of:

Write Where You Belong.

Explore the diverse facets of human connection, from finding your community in the unlikeliest of places to the enduring bonds that transcend blood. 


Whether your piece is set in the heart of a bustling city or in the midst of a post-apocalyptic landscape, we want to hear how your characters come together, work toward a common goal, and discover the true meaning of belonging. Embrace the spectrum of emotions—from heartwarming and uplifting to gritty and dark—as you delve into the complexities of relationships and found family. 


Submit your original story, poem, or creative nonfiction that beautifully encapsulates the essence of what it means to belong, to find your people, and to celebrate the strength of community. Your words have the power to resonate with readers who, like your characters, are on their own journeys of discovery and connection.

Submissions window: November 2023 - January 31st, 2024
