DEADLINE: August 1, 2008
Writer and editor April Thompson is seeking first-person stories for an upcoming anthology of stories about connections made online.
“Connecting Online: Hookups, Reunions and Chance Encounters” will feature essays of NO MORE than 2,500 words about interpersonal connections made through the Internet. Submissions can be comical or irreverent, tear-jerking or thought-provoking: the caliber of writing is more important than the mood of the piece. Please note that essays should center on a particular encounter or relationship cultivated online, rather than expounding on the topic in general.
Stories accepted into the anthology will receive compensation upon publication of up to $150 depending on the length of the piece.
Please send your piece in .doc format, include your contact information, and put “Connecting Online Submission” in the subject of your email, to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Previously published material considered as long as you own the reprint rights.
