Submissions to Coffee Klatch News

Request for info about your fiction serials. Send me your info if you write serial fiction. I plan to start listing serials that are published online by the many wonderful writers who follow Writer’s Life. I am expecting many serials, so I will list them over a few weeks in the order I receive them. This includes sites that feature many fiction series.

I have one more request, please send me as many hashtags as you can that people use on Twitter for fictional series, such as #webfic, etc.

If you write a serial, send me the following information (this will help me so I can list them easily and quickly) send the info in this format to the email address below:

Your Name, Twitter name (with link), website (with link), title of your serial (with link to the first installment in the series), and brief description (one sentence to one paragraph long).

Do you have a contest, challenge or publication (print, ebook or online) or interviews you would like to share with our writer’s life community? Have you discovered a great resource for writers online?
