Submission Opportunity from LaChance Publishing

Last week two writing friends, Linda O'Connell and Julie Earhart, forwarded e-mails to me announcing a call for submissions for Volume 2 of Voices of Breast Cancer from LaChance Publishing. Last Tuesday, Alice, a 15-year breast cancer survivor and a member of our Tuesday critique group, asked for advice on what she plans to send them. I thought visitors of my blog be interested in submitting as well.

The publisher wants: "first-hand stories of literary merit. If you or someone you know has had breast cancer and wish to share your heartfelt, inspiring, true story of facing this life-defining challenge, this could be a great way for you to give courage and comfort to others while building your writing resume."

Deadline: March 1, 2011

Expected publication date: October 2011

Stories should focus on one of the topics listed below:
Discovery and Diagnosis
Taking Charge of Treatment
Dealing with Physical Changes
Family and Friends
Looking Back

Multiple submissions accepted.

Word Count: Minimum 600 words, maximum 4,500 words.

A fee will be paid for stories accepted for publication.

Complete submission guidelines can be found at http://www.lachancepublishing.com/

Good luck!

  1. Hi Donna! It's funny how we writers try to help each other and support each other! When I heard about this particular Call Out, I e-mailed it to the person you mentioned! We definitely are a Circle of Friends!!

  2. Thanks Donna. I wrote about my friend who passed away. Before she died we sat in her yard and she asked me to pick a bouquet of fall leaves as she pointed to them. The next day she taped them to paper and gave them to me as a gift. I use them every year with my students, and I have a constant reminder of her. They are laminated, of course.
