Get to work!

Calling for submissions for Volume 3 of An Honest Lie!
The theme for this volume is
Justifiable Hypocrisy.

We are accepting submissions in the areas of fiction, well written misadventures from real life, and blatant lies that are fun and entertaining.

We're looking for ...

... the ironies in life

... the serendipity of it all

... the epitome of adventure

... the power of imperviousness

... the pull of naivety

... the view from a different angle

... the mix of mood, moment, and movement

... the wretched truth

... a clever lie

... the humor inside

... the mockery of it all

We're looking for perspective. The subject is up to you.

(Please keep it clean. No political commentaries, testimonials, religious manifestos, travel synopses, or poetry.)
