A new anthology, Magic of Memoir: Inspiration for the Writing Journey, seeks submissions for publication in November and I thought many of you may be interested. The top 18-20 submissions will and the top three entries will receive prize money. The submissions deadline is May 1, 2016, and the fee to submit is $20. Prize winners and the anthology contributors will be announced on August 1, 2016.
The editors are looking for essays that describe the particular challenges and stages memoir writers encounter as you write your life stories. How did you deal with your inner critic? What practical strategies provided motivation for you to write about the dark times your story might have brought up? What lessons did you learn from the mistakes you made on this journey? What inspired you and what kept you going?
