Calling all Tea Lovers! A fellow tea blogger has asked that you share your special story or memory and be a part of an exciting new tea themed anthology. Full information about the project (including the Call for Essays and Submission Guidelines) is available at http://teamemoriesbook.googlepages.com The submission deadline is June 30, 2009.
CALL FOR ESSAYS
A new anthology, "Tea Memories: Living Life One Cup at a Time," is in need of your original, non-fiction essays.
Have you "taken tea" in a unique place or under unusual circumstances?
Do you have a story about sharing tea with someone special in your life?
Have you made an important decision over a cup of tea?
Whether humorous or touching, serious or inspiring, your stories of events, experiences, and transformational moments are welcomed. The most important criteria is that the stories be true and that tea plays a role in your essay.
Our intent is to show that tea is far more than something that quenches your thirst. Tea provides comfort, a time for reflection, and a starting point for conversation. Tea plays a supporting role in the stories of our lives. "Tea Memories" aims to share the ways that tea has changed our lives, one cup at a time.
Published and unpublished authors of all ages are encouraged to submit essays for consideration. The best essays will be selected for inclusion in the "Tea Memories" anthology.
Essays should be 800 to 1800 words in length.
The piece should be submitted as an e-mail attachment in .rtf format with "Essay submission" as the subject line of the e-mail.
Include your name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, and a short (60 word max) biography.
Submit essay by June 30, 2009 to firstname.lastname@example.org
