Instructions for contributing to our anthology

To finalize our work on the anthology we started making in March, please share your great work via our site. To do so, please write a post, following these instructions:

  • Include the title of your story as the title of your post
  • To include your writing and preserve your word-processing formatting, please click on the button that looks like a clipboard with a W on it. Use ctrl-V (or command-V on a Mac) to paste your work there
  • Your post should include the title of your story, then your name (OpenLab display name or your real name—it’s your decision), then the story, then three blank lines, then your essay
  • Please run spell-check in your word-processing program before adding your materials
  • Choose the category Anthology, and then also the category that corresponds to the title of the story you’re writing about (without that second category, I won’t be able to organize your work according to the story you’re working with!)
  • Add any tags you find appropriate—you can create your own, or use ones already created on our site
  • Don’t be alarmed if I need to make some minor changes to your work if I’ve forgotten something—I might ask you to make the change or I might just make it myself
  • Don’t be alarmed when you see the full-text stories being added to our site—it’s the only way for me to get that text into our anthology
  • If you’re interested to know more about how we’re making this anthology, look at information about Anthologize, a free, open-source, WordPress-based platform for publishing, at

I’m excited to be able to produce this anthology to share our work in a new way, and to give you each the opportunity to share your work with your friends and families.
