Write For Haiti available now on Kindle! →
Write For Haiti is available now on Amazon Kindle for $2.99/£1.97/€2.60!
Anonymous asked: Because I don't know how to reply (if I can reply) to you. Continuing from my previous question... I would strongly suggest trying Amazon. Both print and definetely kindle which easier and faster to buy. Personally I am one of the three who bough it and I have to admit I was unsatisfied with Lulu's services. I couldn't recommend anyone to buy from there (hence not much promotional...

Anonymous asked: Can we still submit covers?
Anonymous asked: uhm how do we submit things? I can't find a submission button... :/
merdithgreys asked: I just found out about this project, but am I too late to submit something?
starlightinspirations asked: A last question, when you say we need to write "Name/Pen Name" if we ARE using a pen name do we have to give you our real names?
Covers and Deadlines
So, the deadline for cover submissions was a couple of days ago and I realize I’ve been a bit MIA for a while but I’m back and ready to get things running again! We’ve had one submission for a cover which I’m going to put up on the website as soon as I’ve posted this so you guys can all see it and decide whether or not you think it’s a suitable cover. The...
A quick apology!
I just reblogged something that should have gone onto my personal. XD Sorry!
Hi guys! It’s Ayesha, just reminding you the deadline is fast approaching! All submissions need to be in on the 25th! For all of those of you who already have yours in: a huge THANK YOU. We are busy setting up the poll for the cover designs but there’s one problem… we have no covers! Please submit your covers by the 22nd! Thanks so much again! Bye!
What is your W4H's title?

I just got mine in now!
We've had our first submission!
I’m pleased to announce that we’ve already had a submission! Hopefully it’ll be the first of many now. Don’t panic if you haven’t quite finished your story yet (I know I haven’t), there are still 10 days before the deadline. -Heather
starlightinspirations asked: Hey, there! So I wrote my story, but there is a bit of a problem. It lacks dialogue. In fact there is NO dialogue. Is that ok?
Hello all! It’s Ayesha! I come here, bearing reminders. :D The classic submission form: Name/Pen Name : (say whether you would like your real name or pen name to be used) Age : Location : Story Title/Word Count : And the reminder the deadline is the 25th of March! Next reminder: Submit your cover designs! We would LOVE to see them, so we could start up our poll....
Hi everybody, Ayesha here again! W4H is going SUPERB. We have as much, if not more, participants as Write for Japan which is completely AWESOME. Thank you SO much guys! We’d like to ask you to promote Write for Haiti as much as possible throughout the time it’s taking us to get the submissions, when it is published etc. Thanks so much! -Ayesha
How far is everybody?

RandomActs Is Behind Us!
I sent in an email to the director of RandomActs near the beginning of this project and received a very lovely reply giving us full backing for the project and wishing us all the best. I had also asked if we could get someone to write a foreward for the book. I had asked if Misha Collins could do it, knowing it unlikely but thought I’d give it a go anyway, and they countered by suggesting...

pamgriffin asked: Are we going to have a vote for cover designs like we did for Japan?
bunnyinafez asked: How would you define "kindness"?
Who has started their story?
I’m curious to see how many people have already started their stories. I started mine this morning and already have 300 words down. 115 Oak Avenue was a perpetual Halloween haunted house. In appearance anyway. There’s my opening. I’m going with a slightly creepy story that ends well. What are you writing? -Heather
Anonymous asked: this is such an incredible thing ur doing.
Anonymous asked: Can the writing be fiction?
Just dropping in...
I promised Ayesha that I’d let her run the Tumblr side of things but I thought I’d just drop in and explain a little about the project and my motivation behind it. Last year when the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan I set about trying to get a group of writers together to create a book of short stories based on the themes of devastation and hope. We manage to gather 34 writers of all...
Story Submission Requirements
Hello, it’s Ayesha again! :D All of you fantastic people writing short stories for Write for Haiti deserve a huge hug! We are planning on having every story submitted in the book, unless we get too many submissions or something then we’d either have another book or cut some stories out. We would ask that all of the short stories have a theme of kindness, however you interpret...

Write for Japan!
Last year, around this time, Japan had a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, followed by tsunamis. A group of writers from around the globe wanted to raise money and help make a difference to those affected by the Japanese earthquake and tsunamis. We achieved this goal by publishing a collection of short stories in both eBook and paperback format. All of the profits raised by our book went to the...
