Call for Submissions: WOMEN AND HORSES: A STORY COLLECTION

Hi everyone,

I introduced Verna Dreisbach a week or so ago (scroll down on this post). She is an agent, and now the editor of a cool new anthology from Seal Press. I love Seal Press. I admire Verna’s spunk. Please submit, if you feel called.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

WOMEN AND HORSES:  A STORY COLLECTION
Seal Press, Berkeley CA
Editor, Verna Dreisbach

Dear Friends,

Here is an exciting opportunity for you to be published in a new story collection by Seal Press.  Previous anthologies of this nature by Seal Press include Cat Women and Woman’s Best Friend.  The expected date of publication will be no later than January 2010, giving ample time to collect, choose and edit stories.

I am looking for truly inspirational stories that speak from the heart and show the unique bond between a woman and her horse.  Each story should be at least 1,000 words, but no more than 2,500 words in length.  Please send double-spaced versions only, in 12 point font Times New Roman as a Word Document.

Should your story be selected for inclusion in the book, the publisher will pay $100 for the rights to use your story in the anthology as well as provide the contributor with two copies of the book at no cost.  Your name will appear with the story as well as the option to include a high quality photograph of you and your horse.  Please consider that photographs will be printed in black and white.  Do not send photographs until asked to do so.

I am accepting submissions until January 15, 2009.  Please be sure to include your contact information with your submission: name, address, phone numbers and e-mail address.  Send stories to:  womenandhorses@gmail.com.  You can read more about the progress of the book at http://horsesandwomen.blogspot.com.

Due to the volume of submissions, only finalists will be notified.

I look forward to reading your stories and thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
Verna Dreisbach
