How to Submit

swn coverWelcome to Spiritual Writers Network, a place for writers to get inspired, share and network with other writers. Our vision for this site is to bring together a spiritual community who wish to leave the world a little bit better than they found it.  By sharing your short stories and poems,  you have the opportunity to touch someone’s life, help others, and raise the world’s vibration through love and inspiration.  There seems to be a shift in consciousness occurring, and now more than ever there is a need for writers, artists, teachers and healers to share their unique messages with the world.

We invite you to REGISTER (in the upper left-hand corner of the homepage) and build a profile where you can showcase your writing, link to your website/blog, or any other published work that you would like to share.  You can add a bio and a photo – as much or as little information as you feel comfortable sharing.

Once you are registered, you may start submitting stories and/or poems and place them into one of our many categories.  Just select ADD NEW ARTICLE from the right-hand side of the page.

You have access to your work at anytime, so you can always go back and edit, delete or add to your previous submissions.

Be sure to sign up for our NEWSLETTER as well.  NOTE: There is a separate sign up form for the newsletter than the form used to register to write for the site.

As an added bonus, we have joined with Transcendent Publishing to offer CONTESTS and competitions bi-annually for a chance at publication.  When we offer these contests we will announce it on the HOME page as well as our FACEBOOK and TWITTER pages.

As always, there is no cost to REGISTER or belong to Spiritual Writers Network.  You do not have to be a “writer” to submit your words here.  Perhaps you just have something to say?  An experience that you would like to share?  Everyone is welcome to register, write and share on our network.  All we ask is you share your message with good intentions for all concerned.
