I am looking for vivid and honest personal stories and essays about the experiences of women of color in elite liberal arts colleges throughout the United States.
I am looking to attract submissions that reflect experiences, friendships and realizations made during the college years. Themes to consider include but are not limited to,
• socioeconomic, cultural, racial issues
• classroom dynamics
• turning points
• challenging moments
• student/professor dynamics
• sex, sexuality
Contributions will be accepted in the form of a poem, letter, journal entry, personal reflection and/or essay. Entries should not exceed ten pages. Your submisions will be cautiously edited for grammar and comprehensibility.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to include everyone’s submissions. Priority will be given to those who submit their work before the September 1st, 2010 deadline.
Note: You may also schedule a time to have us come interview you.
