The Writer's Workout is proud to support several publications each year.
Each potion of The Writer's Games results in a new volume of 72 Hours of Insanity. Find information about our Games Anthologies here.
WayWords is a quarterly literary journal with a central theme. For this publication, editors look for short stories or poems that interpret the central theme in whatever way the author feels inspired. WayWords also includes a small tribute section with space for creative nonfiction from people with first-hand experience on that topic. Find information about WayWords here.
Occasionally, we post open calls for standalone anthologies with varying subjects, themes, and structures. Details of these irregular publications appear below.
All writers are welcome to submit work to any Writer's Workout publication before its posted deadline.

Tales from the Cliff
A story doesn’t always have to end with a character completing their journey. Often, a story can end with suspense and uncertainty.
Cliffhangers, love them or hate them, are a huge part of literary tradition. Usually, there's a resolution in the sequel, but what if there isn't? Take a look inside and find out what happens when a finished tale ends in cliffhanger!
