Submission Call: “Wisdom Has a Voice: Every Daughter’s Memories of Mother”

Post date: 29 September 2010
Deadline: 1 February 2011

Editors: Kate Farrell & Lynn Henriksen

This groundbreaking anthology, to be released October 2011, will include 25 true and compelling stories about mother (or mother figures) that express the wisdom shared or learned from a particular experience.

We are looking for personal narratives that demonstrate the art of storytelling and possess a story arc with dramatic appeal. We will select stories that weave the significance of the unique experience into the storyline. Each selection should adapt easily to the spoken word as an audio version. The wisdom or lesson learned from mother ought to be expressed in an authentic voice with originality and resonance.
