Pool Room Stories - Call for Submissions

Welcome Modern

Welcome to our web site!

Do you have an unbelievable story that happened in a poolroom?
We are putting together an anthology of poolroom related stories.  Do you have a story of a game you just weren't supposed to win?  Did you meet your significant other in a poolroom?  Tell us what happened to you....
There is no publisher as of yet, but with great stories, we know it won't take long to find one.
You don't have to be the best writer to have your story accepted, just have a great story and we'll help you with the rest.

Submission guidelines:
1.  Stories must be true accounts and in some way need to be billiard/pool related.  No stories that happened in a bar with one table.  That's not a poolroom.
2.  Stories must be between 500-2,000 words.
3.  Stories must be submitted in the body of an email.  No attachments will be accepted.  Type "Pool Submission" in the subject line.
4.  No graphic violence or sex in stories - use your imagination and a few euphemisms if you need to.  No stories featuring people under 18 years old.
5.  Stories may be edited for content, language or space.  If names have been changed, send an email to tell us that.
6.  Each accepted contributor will receive a short bio in the book in lieu of monetary compensation since there are no guarantees as to publishing.
7.  Submission deadline:  August 31, 2003.

Tell us your story.

Talking mouth

We reserve the right to refuse a story if we feel 1) it does not conform to our guidelines, 2) we are unable to use it due to content, 3) if the story infringes upon the rights of another person and/or establishment, 4) or if we just don't think it fits.
