Call for Submissions: Cup of Comfort

No comments

Adams Media is seeking submissions for an upcoming Cup of Comfort anthology called "A Cup of Comfort for Divorced Women." From their web site:

Divorce in the twenty-first century should come with an instruction manual, a release valve, and a support system. This anthology will serve essentially those three purposes, in the form of comforting, insightful, and inspirational stories about surviving and thriving during and after divorce. We seek uplifting, contemporary stories on a wide range of topics of importance to divorced women—including but not limited to: dating, children, relationship with ex, in-laws, finances, friends, solitude, personal transformation, healing, revenge, mending fences, the ex's new wife or lover. The majority of stories will be written by women who are or have been divorced. Stories can be poignant, irreverent, humorous, witty, or wise.

Submission Deadline is December 31, 2007. See the writing guidelines for more info!
