All members have the right to submit an article, short story, essay, photo, illustration, or poem for the 2012 Anthology. The book is published at Conference time in September each year. Conference goers receive one in their conference bag so that they can use it as a yearbook, getting the signatures of their fellow MWSA members for a special keepsake. Other MWSA members can purchase one through Amazon. Send your submissions to MWSA VP Mike Mullins through the contact note on his profile in the Membership Roster.

Imagine before the first book is distributed by Ingram Book Company that an historian slams a novel based solely on the subject matter. Now, imagine that you later find out that the goal of said historian is to "put 19th Century American slaves back in their rightful place in American Civil War military history." Finally, imagine that the first young adult to read the same book receives an "A" on a school book report.
Every author who wishes to put their dream into a reality will come upon the issue of finding a publisher who will be willing to publish their work. Whether the author wants to spend a large amount of money to do so or to use a Print On Demand (POD) publisher who most always will publish and print your work for very little or at no cost to the author, the choice can be difficult at times.
