A Cup of Comfort
"In times like these, everyone can use A Cup of Comfort."
A Cup of Comfort is a series of story anthologies featuring different themes. The editors are actively soliciting true-to-life heartwarming stories about relationships, experiences and situations that inspire and affect our lives. Written by people from a variety of backgrounds, these stories are selected for inclusion based on originality, creativity, emotional impact and substance.
Currently, the editors are soliciting true stories honoring nursing professionals and their experiences helping others. The deadline for submissions for that specific anthology is December 1, 2004.
Additional anthologies are being planned. Possible future themes are: animal lovers, grandmothers, health and happiness, and writers, among others. However, heartwarming and inspirational stories about ANY topic may be submitted at any time.
Each anthology includes a balanced mix of stories with a variety of themes, such as life-changing experiences, serendipity, triumph over tragedy or adversity, acts of kindness, and experiences that bring hope and healing. The anthologies do NOT publish fiction, poetry, sermons, testimonials, letters, commentary or articles, among other things.
A grand prize of $500 is awarded to one story per volume. All other stories published in each book will receive $100 each, plus a complimentary copy. Story length should be between 1,000 to 2,000 words.

Darklight anti-fanfic, running now through Jan 31, 2005. Retell the terrible sci-fi channel movie to share among fellow (anti)fans or come up with an original idea based on the demoness Lilith for possible publication in the Press. More info.
