Bylines, the writer’s desk calendar created by Sylvia Forbes to help writers stay organized, inspired and focused, is currently accepting submissions for the 2013 edition. The deadline is March 1 for succinct, personal stories about the writing life, including success, rejection, motivation, tough lessons learned and freelancing. Humor is welcomed. Complete guidelines are available at www.bylinescalendar.com.
Each year, Bylines features the desk of a famous writer on the cover. Bylines 2013 will feature the desk of Ralph Waldo Emerson of Concord, Mass. Emerson was one of the most well-known writers of his day, and gave over 1500 talks in addition to authoring books on his philosophies of man, religion and nature. He is said to have inspired both Henry Thoreau and Walt Whitman.
Forbes recently created a Facebook page for Bylines with links to reviews, comments, and other information. Bylines is available for purchase at www.bylinescalendar.com and on Amazon.com.
