Short Story Lovers Will Love This Book!

Hi, we're Elizabeth and Catherine, co-creators of Two Sisters Writing & Publishing.  

Catherine spent years submitting short stories to magazines, hoping to get selected for publication.  

Instead, she got a big pile of rejection letters.  

How could she ever share her writing with the world if it never got published?

Fast forward to 2018.

Catherine now co-owns a publishing company, and created a monthly contest for short story writers -- and the winners get their creations published in our annual anthology!


Talk about being the change you wish to see in the world! Catherine is taking Gandhi's advice and serving as a great example that we have the power to bring our creative visions to life, and enchant readers around the world as a result.

Yes, around the world, because our talented winners live on different continents.

So now, we're thrilled to announce the release of the Two Sisters Writing and Publishing First Annual Anthology featuring International Writers.
