It’s the 10th Anniversary Edition of Vol. 3!
Invisible Publishing and Sarah Selecky Writing school have joined forces with York University’s book publishing practicum class to produce print editions of the wildly popular Little Bird Stories anthologies. The Little Bird Writing Contest is an international contest for innovative, emerging short fiction writers. The contest opens each spring when the birds come back and showcases the excellent stories that come from Sarah Selecky Writing School. And the anthology collects the top five stories in one perfect, punchy volume.
The edition’s judge is Alix Ohlin.
Little Bird Stories, Volume 3 includes stories by Leslie Greentree, Emrys Donaldson, Susan Bernhard, Leah Jane Esau, and Adam Giles.
Proceeds from anthology sales go towards the Pelee Island Bird Observatory and the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory to help protect the real little birds out there.
