7 Cool Stocking Stuffers for Writers

stocking stock photo writing jobs canadaWe are just a week away from Christmas and the desperate hunt for last minute gifts and stocking stuffers is in full swing. I shared my favourite gifts for writers a couple of weeks back and today I am sharing some fun stocking stuffer ideas for writers. Unlike my list of the best gifts for writers that included items that any writer would find useful, my stocking stuffers list is all about whimsy and fun. Yes, these are the kinds of neat little gifts that even a non-writer will be excited to give. So, let’s get on ‘er, shall we?

7 Stocking Stuffers for Writers and Authors

1. Literary Action Figures

Who needs a Star Wars action figure when you can have a movable Edgar Allen Poe action figure instead? Accoutrements makes literary action figures that will leave you or the writer in your life squealing like a kid on Christmas morning. Think Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and my personal favourite, Charles Dickens!


2. Dead Fred Pen Holder

You know those days when you top off your coffee with brandy because stabbing someone with your pen is frowned on? The Dead Fred Pen Holder was made for these days. Fred’s made of silicone and perfect for taking out your frustrations on. You get to stab him over and over again with your pen without the fear of jail time. Merry Christmas indeed.

3. Writerly Jewelry

Quotation Cufflinks, Vintage Typewriter Key Necklaces, and Grammar Bracelets are just a few of many fun and insanely affordable jewelry gifts for writers you can find online. Bonus: Most are well under $10!
       

4. A Cool Writers Mug

There are so many cool writers’ mugs that you’ll probably have trouble narrowing it down, so I’m doing it for you beginning with my current favourite. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea (tee hee!), but it’s to-the-point and I love it because regardless of the type of writer you’re giving it to, writing epic shit is always the goal.
         

5. AquaNotes Waterproof Notepad

Yeah, this Waterproof Notepad has been included on pretty much every top 10 best gifts for writers’ list out there, but it really is a great gift idea. We really do often come up with ideas while showering or relaxing in the tub so being able to jot them down the moment we have them is helpful.

6. Literary T-Shirts

You can find a literary T-shirt in just about every colour and size with quotes to tickle the fancy of any writer and this is just a sampling.
            

7. A Leather Bound Journal

There’s just something about a leather journal that can send almost any writer’s heart aflutter. I personally love those that look weathered and rustic, but as you can see here, there are styles to suit any taste.



Happy shopping!

Calls for Submissions

BUST MAGAZINE – Got a great story or a great story idea? Something you’re somagenta_logo.sm2 passionate about that you’ve just gotta share it with the world? Then don’t just sit there, woman! Submit your story to BUST!

BUST does not accept poetry. Sorry. If you are submitting a story idea rather than a story, please also send us clips of your previous writing.

Does your brilliant idea fall into one of these handy categories? If so, please specify the section when submitting:

Broadcast

Stories in this department focus on pop culture personalities, news, and views important to women. Here’s where we write about that amazing performance artist or that awesome project or grassroots org, and indulge in shameless she-ro worship. Submissions should be 250-350 words long.

Real Life

Cooking, crafts, home, health, here’s where we explore all the ways we do that everyday voodoo that we do so well. Do you have a cool skill? Are you qualified to instruct our readers on how to buy or use something they’ve always wanted? (Stereo, sewing machine, the Elephant Man’s bones, etc.) Fancy DIY inventions and household tips can also be sent to the attention of this section! Submissions should be 250-350 words long.

Looks

Calling all glamazons! For fashion, beauty, and style coverage without that bitter, elitist after-taste, there’s nothing more refreshing than the BUST “Looks” section. Fill us in on all your fave new designers, trends, and products here. Submissions should be 250-350 words long.

Around The World in 80 Girls

What makes your hometown the BUST-iest place on earth? For this ongoing series, we’re looking for writers who can dish all the insider dirt on the best grrrl-friendly hotspots their home turfs have to offer. From large cities to small towns, if you have a great take on what makes your hood a shangri-la for she-travelers, take some snapshots and show us why or just tell us where you live and what kind of destinations you plan on covering and we’ll put your pitch on file. Submissions should be 1000-1500 words long.

Features

Do you have an idea for a reported feature that’s feminist, sexy, smart, funny, surprising, and generally doesn’t suck? If so, then send us a pitch detailing exactly what you’d like to write about, what sources you have access to, and what your credentials are, and we’ll let you know if your story works for us. Submissions should be 2,500 words or less.

The BUST Guide

Decisions about what new stuff to include in the book, movie and music review sections usually happen well in advance of the release dates of these titles, but if you are somehow on the inside track and can get your hands on something you love before the rest of the world has seen/heard/read it, then let us know! Reviews should generally be 150-250 words long and it’s always a good idea to check out old issues of BUST to get a feel for our review style.

Sex Files

Sex toys, sex enhancing products, and porno guides for grrrls are some of the titillating topics covered in this sassy section. We invite all you brazen hussies out there to strut your stuff here for the erotic edification of frolicsome feminists everywhere. Submissions should be 250-350 words long.

One-Handed-Read

Think you can inspire a little self-directed friction with your erotic fiction? Then send your smutty stories to the attention of this section where hotness rules and cliché drools. Submissions should be approximately 900 words long… Read more/submit here
