Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
East Bay Monthly Call for Submissions:

No comments

We’re now accepting short first-person essays (900 words maximum) for possible publication in our January 2010 issue.

The theme: "A moment (big or small) after which nothing was the same."

Please note that although we have nothing against poems, short stories, or epic novels, we can only consider bona fide essays for the purpose of this issue.

To submit an essay for consideration: 
Paste it into your email to editorialATthemonthlyDOTcom and attach it as a Word document (doc, not docx, please). 

Please include your name, telephone number, and email on every page.

Deadline: November 16.

Please feel free to forward this call for submissions to anyone who might be interested.

Very truly yours,

Autumn Stephens and Sarah Weld
