Deadline July 1 | Call for Submissions from Women Writers - An Eclectic Collage: 'About Death' and 'For the Love of Animals' (Freundship Press)

Post date: Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Deadline: 1 July 2012

Attention all women who love to write and are interested in being published either for the first time or again. The success of Volumes I and II of "An Eclectic Collage" presented us with an interesting dilemna: what should be the theme of the next EC volume? We asked for ideas and narrowed the choices down to two very intriguing albeit different ideas: death and animals. The first subject is rarely discussed while many books have been written about the second topic. Yet the animal stories were some of the most popular in EC II: Relationships of Life. So rather than choosing one over the other, we're going to publish BOTH topics in TWO different books. Both books will definitely be in e-book form while at least one of them will start out in print.
