The Guilded Pen

In 2012, SDWEG introduced The Guilded Pen—First Edition, a compilation of short stories, poems, and imaginative essays by our members. We've been introducing a new edition every year since.

2018 Anthology Cover FRONT ONLYOn November 26, 2018, the San Diego Writers and Editors Guild released The Guilded Pen, 7th Edition, our 2018 anthology. As in all previous anthologies, the volume includes the short stories, poems, and imaginative essays of general interest by our members. This year, we’ve added a “flash fiction” category.

The anthology is produced as a fund-raising project for SDWEG, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All royalties from the sale of the anthologies support the mission of the SDWEG which is to promote, support, and encourage the writing art for adults and youth. Copies will be available at all meetings for purchase at $15.00 each.

To order copies of the new anthology, select the Add to Shopping Cart link below:

The Sixth Edition are available for $12 (includes sales tax) or by mail order (shipping costs will be added). We are sold out of the Fourth and Fifth Editions.

  1. Howdy: Where would I find the guidelines for submitting something for your next anthology? Thanks, Wayne Raffesberger

    1. Hello, Wayne,

      First, we accept submissions only from our members. We would, of course, welcome your joining the Guild and attending our monthly meetings. You can find out more about membership on our Home, About, and Join the Guild pages.

      Second, the requirements for submitting will be announced closer to the time we will begin accepting them, usually in March or April.

      Thanks for your interest in the Guild. I hope we’ll see you soon.
