Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Hero Series call for true stories

No comments

Adams Media is publishing a new anthology (book) series featuring uplifting true stories about the experiences and relationships that inspire and enrich our lives—namely those with our mothers, our fathers, and our teachers (also mother-figures, father-figures, and mentors). These slice-of-life stories will be written by people from all walks of life and provide unique personal insights into powerful universal truths, as well as honor the "everyday hero" in their lives. Each anthology in the series will be divided to highlight the variety of ways mothers, teachers, and fathers go beyond the call of duty to heroism.

Submission Deadline: SEPTEMBER 5, 2007
