KIDS' SAYINGS: Priceless! by Wilma Caraway

KIDS' SAYINGS: Priceless!

by Wilma Caraway


Wilma Caraway is compiling a book of children’s sayings. The sweet innocence of our children is reflected in some of their words as they begin learning to communicate. Her plan is to compile as many sayings as possible, and she is requesting your submission.


If you recall some cute or funny things your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or other family or friends have said, she would like to consider them for her book. So, put on your thinking cap and start writing.  See samples below.



Submission Guidelines:

  • Include the child’s first name and age when the saying occurred.
  • Include your complete name, address, phone number, and email address.
  • Entries will be edited.
  • Please submit by August 1, 2014.
  • By submitting your saying(s), you are granting permission for publication.
  • Submissions can be via email: or regular mail at: 20234 Gum Island Road, Georgetown, DE 19947


Wilma’s hope is that this book will be a source of joy for those who submit entries and a great book to give as a special gift. If you have questions, feel free to call Wilma at 302.337.7181.



Opportunity #2

CHRISTMAS Anthology (2015)

Delmarva Christian Writers' Fellowship/Claire Smith

The deadline for submissions has passed for the 2014 DCWF Christmas anthology, but it's not too early to plan for the 2015 edition. Next year, the publisher will be Gems From the House, and Claire Smith will establish the guidelines. For reference, the 2014 guidelines will remain here for a while:  


Capture your Christmas stories, poems, devotionals, original songs, puzzles, artwork, etc.) 


Our new book, Christmas Presence, has been so well received, we're rolling right along with a new edition for 2014. If you are (or have been or want to be) affiliated with Delmarva Christian Writers' Fellowship, we invite you to submit a manuscript for consideration. We are accepting all genres: short stories, poetry, devotionals, word games, artwork, fillers--anything about Christmas that readers would find inspirational or enjoyable. It must be family-friendly, of course.


Deadline: Thursday, July 31, 2014 This is a firm deadline. Entries received after 7/31/14 will not be included (but may be considered in a future edition).



You can submit a devotional (Scripture, Meditation of 350 or fewer words, and Prayer), a short story (1200 words or less), a poem (free verse or rhyme), an original song (with music, please), an inspirational saying, a Bible lesson with activities, fillers, word games and puzzles, artwork, or any other format the Lord has given you that would inspire or delight readers. Your manuscript can be for children or adults . . . think "family time" as well as private Christmas reflection. Manuscripts should be double spaced, 12-point font, with one-inch margins. If using Scripture passages, indicate which translation, and double check to be sure it is exact. Include your name, address, phone number, and email.
