Pink Umbrella Books, a Phoenix-based micropublisher is currently accepting submissions for a Little Women Anthology in honor of the upcoming 2018 150th anniversary of its publication.
Here are details from their website:
Pink Umbrella Books is pleased to honor the beloved children’s classic with an original anthology. We invite writers around the world to submit their best previously unpublished creative nonfiction inspired by Alcott’s novel (memoir, essay, literary journalism and everything in between) for consideration. We welcome pieces between 500 – 7,000 words that speak to the life and legacy of Little Women. Have you made a pilgrimage to Orchard House? Are you turning into your Marmee? Did you jilt a “perfect” (Italian and musical) suitor? Maybe you met the modern Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—but in a Karachi slum. Perhaps you’re a nurse with a Beth story, or you just want to—literarily, rather than literally—wrench the clothespin off Amy’s upturned nose. Whatever the story, we want to hear from you.
We’ll be accepting your Little Women-inspired submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org through March 1st, 2018. Please include a brief bio of no more than 200 words along with your work. Multiple submissions are accepted, and entry is free and open to all. Authors selected for inclusion will receive 2 copies of the anthology upon publication. Nonfiction in any style is welcome—however, we value authentic, vivid work, and, just like Jo, we prefer “good strong words that mean something.”
