Call for Submissions: Anthology on Widowhood

No comments

Silver Boomer Books has extended their reading period for submissions to On Our Own, an anthology about the widowhood experience, to March 31, 2012.

Either prose or poetry is welcome. All aspects of widowhood are acceptable; we'd be especially interested in essays or poetry about how widows/widowers have become "survivors" and learned to live "on their own." Please visit our website at www.silverboomerbooks.com and click on Call for Submissions for more information.
