Call for submissions: Harvest Baskets

My friend Jo Carubia is a writer, editor and educator who has many years of experience in publishing and academia. Jo is working on an edited volume of stories about women and is soliciting submissions. The more of us contribute, the better!!!

Gathering Stories from Heart to Heart
Legends, Tales, and Truth about Women in Families
Near and Far

Harvest Baskets
HARVEST BASKETS is a gathering of stories about the women in your family, and every family. This book will include short reflections, humorous stories, poetry, copies of letters written generations ago, photographs, and narratives of growing up with the influence of magnificent women. It will also include some memories that are puzzles still unsolved, or even dark recollections that cast shadows through the years.

Both men and women are invited to submit brief stories that sketch a moment, an event, a character from your family’s life. Suggested length is 250 to 500 words, but please inquire if your story is shorter or longer.
