Friendship Story Submissions Sought

What's Your Favorite Friendship Story?

Mention friends and everyone has a memory or story to share. Choice Publishing Group (CPG) is collecting these stories and memories about, by, and from friends for their new book Patchwork Path: Friendship Star.

CPG is looking for original stories and essays from 250 to 2000 words about friendship. Each submission will be reviewed and considered based on creativity, originality, concept, and style. Reading will be continuous and submissions will be considered as they arrive. Not all works will be accepted. There is NO Entry or Reading Fee. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2009.

Submissions will be selected for publication in Patchwork Path: Friendship Star by Choice Publishing Group president Tena Beth Thompson and bestselling author Gregory A. Kompes.

The Patchwork Path story collection titles are all based on quilt block names and have quilt and quilter themes.

Miss Thompson writes about her life experiences with humor. "If I can put a smile on one person's face for a second, easing their pain, I will consider my book a huge success," she says with conviction. Thompson's book, Separation Survival Guide, When Your Marriage Catapults into Limbo, will be available in 2008.
