LM Wants Your Opinion: Call for Submissions

No comments

Literary Mama is looking for short (500-900 words), strong, topical, opinionated pieces for the monthly OpEd feature. LM is not a paying market but it is read by some 500,000 parents and writers as well as editors and agents. Click here for submission guidelines.

In order to help get those synapses firing, here are the upcoming themes:

June

The Stories We Tell: Books, urban legends, television shows, gossip
-- what do you think of when you hear the word stories? How have the
stories you've heard shaped you? How do the stories you've told
define you? We're looking for short, strong, opinionated essays on
anything that can fit the theme "The Stories We Tell." Ties to
current events a big plus!

July

Crossing State Lines: We want to hear your short, strong, opinionated
essays that resonate with our op-ed theme of Crossing State Lines. Is
there something going on in the world today that makes this theme
resonate with you? Whether you're talking about travel, laws, culture
or Red State/Blue State politics, we want to hear what you have to say.

August

Square Pegs, Round Holes: Fitting in, sticking out. The assumptions
we make about each other and how they drive our policies or our
principles. What's happening in the world today that fits our theme
of Square Pegs, Round Holes? We want to hear your short, strong,
opinionated essays on this month's theme.
