To Submit for Consideration:

Please submit a story of 1,200 words or less. I like jpegs, pdfs, or in the body of the email. Make sure that the theme is mentioned in the subject line and your name is in the body of the submission. I can't count how many times I've received a story with no name in the body of the email.

Finally, if I don't know you or your work, and you have not seen a Tasty Words™ show live, that is the first step. Come see what it is all about and shake my hand or give me a hug and introduce yourself after the show. That's how I roll. Thanks for all.

Can't wait to hear your stories.
