Last call for submissions to island writing anthology

Saipan, CNMI – The deadline to submit a piece for the upcoming anthology of local writers is fast approaching. The last day to submit original work to Stories from Wild Bill's Cafe: Life, Love and Spicy Tofu in the Northern Mariana Islands is December 15.

“We received a lot of interest when we announced the anthology back in September,” said Angelo O’Connor Villagomez. "The editors have received works from a dozen writers so far, but we've also heard from many others who expressed an intention to submit. We just want to remind everyone that there is about a month left before the deadline.”

Submitted work will be blind reviewed by a panel of editors. The lead editors of Stories from Wild Bill's Café are Jane Mack, Joe Race, Jaime Vergara, and Villagomez.

The inspiration for the name of the anthology comes from Wild Bills Café, a popular restaurant on Beach Road in Garapan.

Writers interested in submitting work for the anthology can contact the editors at WildBillStories@gmail.com. Submission guidelines are available upon request. Writers whose work is chosen for submission will receive two (2) copies of Stories from Wild Bill's Café.
