Pretty neat concept for this upcoming anthology. Deadline is March 31st:
The University of Nebraska Gender Programs / Women’s Center is publishing the anthology Becoming, edited by Jill McCabe Johnson. The editors seek personal narratives and a small number of poems relaying the story of a formative experience that helped shape the woman you’ve become.
Please send one personal narrative or one autobiographical poem to:
becominganthology [at] gmail [dot] com
Files must be in .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .rtf formats. Files should be named with the word poetry or prose followed by the author’s last name. For example:
“Prose_Gonzalez.doc” or “Poetry_Albrecht-Hanes.pdf”
Poems should be one page or less. Personal narratives can be up to 1,000 words. Please note: only a handful of poems will be selected for the anthology. No fiction, please, only your own personal story.
In your email, please include:
- Email address
- Title of submission
- If your submission was previously published please include the publication title, edition, and date
Contributors will be paid with one copy of the anthology. Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2010.
