Due September 15, 2009
Main Street Rag

We will begin accepting stories for consideration on three new themes again starting in January 2009. We will be reading on these themes until we fill the pages or until September 15, 2009 (postmark date).

Themes for 2009:

The Commute (stories regarding travel including everything from bicycling to busing to driving to riding a horse—getting from here to there)

Food (stories about eating, cooking, restaurants, barbecues, picnics—if food is a centerpiece of the story, it’s eligible)

Coming Home
(stories of soldiers returning, people visiting a place that they've been away from for a while, children growing up as well as stories about people overcoming physical and emotional challenges).

Please check the website for specific guidelines.
