Rhiza Connect is seeking submissions of short stories for an anthology to be produced early in 2019.  Submissions are open until 31st December 2018. 

We are looking for stories that are in tune with the Rhiza Connect brand and that explore the topic of Home. Stories should be suitable for anyone aged 13+ years. In other words, they must be family-friendly in content so they can be read and enjoyed by anyone - from teenagers to grandparents. For information on content that fits the Rhiza Connect brand, we suggest you read some of our published books.  You can take a look at our books by going to the books tab on this website. We have also selected three of our favourite titles and packaged these at a discounted price. Details below. These are not short stories, but the style and content will give you a sound understanding of what we are seeking.

The theme of Home can be explored in terms of people, place, habitat, nature, and time, to give just a few examples. But don't let this list limit you!
