Seeking Short Stories

Rhiza Connect

At Rhiza Connect we’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a search for some fabulous new short stories.  We will gather the very best of these and collate them into a collection to be published in 2019.

The theme of our short story collection is ‘Home’ and the stories can be written in any genre but must be in tune with the Rhiza Connect brand.  So, they should be family-friendly in content and suitable to be read by anyone aged 13+years.

The idea for the theme of ‘Home’ springs from the purpose of Rhiza Connect: to publish relatable stories that focus on relationship and growth, and are inspiring and ultimately hopeful.  The theme can be explored in any way you imagine: in terms of people, place, habitat, nature, spirituality, and time, to give just a few ideas – but feel free to let your creativity and inspiration run free!

The Short Stories Submission portal is now open and can be accessed via that link or by searching on the Rhiza Connect website and looking under the Submissions tab. You’ll find all the other details you’ll need right there too, including a specially discounted pack of Rhiza Connect books for inspiration and a great sample of what fits under the Rhiza Connect brand.

We’re looking forwards to reading your submissions and would love you to share this page with all your writerly friends!


Take a look at our specially discounted inspiration pack, including a great selection of some of our best-selling favourites. These books provide a great sample of what fits in the Rhiza Connect brand, and all feature themes of home.
