“We Made It! – Essays Reflecting On The new year”

As we begin to round the corner and approach the end of this year, one that has been indisputably more challenging to many than those that preceded it, we are led to a place of reflection-where we can look back on the previous twelve months and look forward to what is ahead. “We Made It! – Essays Reflecting On The New Year” is our way of celebrating all that we have persevered through during these difficult times. For this edition of The Red Penguin Collection, we are looking for essays (between 1,000 and 5,000 words in length) that discuss this opportunity of introspection and inspire our readers to go forth into the future with a renewed sense of hope, both in the world and in themselves. So let’s pop the sparkling cider and raise our glasses, because, when the ball drops at midnight and we can at last wish this year our fastest of farewells, this book will be what we have to hold on to.

“We Made It! – Essays Reflecting On The new year”

As we kick off the new year here at Red Penguin Books, The Red Penguin Collection is excited to open up submissions for “It’s The End of The World As We Know It”, an anthology of short stories that tell of the end of the world. In 1,500 to 5,000 words, send in your apocalyptic pieces. From nuclear wars to zombie outbreaks, we are looking for unique and exciting works of fiction that are sure to start this year off with a BANG!

Feeding The Flock – Recipes from the Red Penguin Family – Recipes w/stories – 1/15

Click here with submissions – https://forms.gle/zpxnqwpQMNXr24RS8

A colony of penguins is known to wait through the winter months for their adult members to return from fishing trips with food for the rest of the group. This action is referred to as “Feeding the Flock”.

In this special edition of The Red Penguin Collection, we have decided to put together a cookbook that celebrates the recipes of emerging authors, both previously published with us and new. This submission, that includes a hi-resolution photograph of the finished product, a list of ingredients, approximate time, detailed instructions, and a writing submission (1,500 words or less) that talks about the history of the dish, the inspiration behind the recipe, or tells a story that includes the food in it, is definitely quite an undertaking, but sure to be worth it. As our period of separation continues, sharing a meal with the Red Penguin family will now be as easy as cracking open a book!

A Heart Full of Love—Romance Short Stories – Romantic Submissions – 1/31

Click here with submissions – https://forms.gle/rNHBmyvnKBpeCtjAA

The season of St. Valentine is soon approaching, and, if you know anything about the staff here at Red penguin, we are nothing if not a team of romantics. In this next edition of The Red Penguin Collection, “A Heart Full of Love”, we are looking for writing submissions that celebrate stories of love. Particularly, in less than 5,000 words, we would love to hear stories that really explore a facet of “love” that might not often be talked about. Maybe you have a strong bond to a long-term pet? Or a story about a journey towards self-love? (But, if you have a super cute high school sweetheart story, we love those too and want to read it!) This year, let’s celebrate the love that keeps the world going round.

The Florist on the Corner – Nature Inspired Poetry – 2/28

In the second poetry book to be released by The Red Penguin Collection, we are looking for poems of all styles and lengths, centering around the theme of nature. Write about flowers, memories of walks in nature, the seasons changing–whatever makes you look forward to the Spring that, much like this anthology, is just around the corner!
