Press Release Summary: Short Stories Invited by Mirage Books

Mirage Books, a Pune-based publishing house, that has recently released the novel
titled 'Square Circles' has announced another project - a book of experimental short
stories. The stories will be selected from open entries submitted by both, amateur
and established writers. There is no entry fee nor any formality.
A publishing house set up to combat the monopoly that exists in today's publishing
world where only known writers get published, Mirage Books has announced a contest
for short story writers wherein anyone can submit a story of 1000-1500 words. The
stories can be as innovatively written as possible. "We want writers to let their
imagination soar free and break the rules of short story writing. For instance,
there need not be a typical beginning, middle and end kind of a story. It could jump
between time and geographical frames or it can be told from a different perspective
altogether. We are looking for stories that will reflect contemporary thinking that
will connect with the realities of today's world," said Nikhil Khanna, Managing
Director, Mirage Books.

Out of the entries received from across the globe, 50 stories will be chosen to be
published in a book form. Each story will be accompanied with the writer's short bio
and photograph. "The basic idea behind this venture is to tap into the creativity of
writers who are unable to find a publishing platform for their work. We want closet
writers to come out and become a part of the new-age publishing movement," Khanna
The last date for sending entries through email is October 15th. The story can be
emailed to Further information can be downloaded from the
