Any Craft Writers Out There?

I got this email from a Leisure Arts editor this morning and thought some of you might be interested.    Here’s what Debra said: 

"This is an excellent opportunity for novice writers to get their first
publication credit, and to work with an editor who remembers how
intimidating the whole process can seem in the beginning."

So what are you waiting for?  Submit something.

(And by the way, check out Debra’s blog while you’re at it, I enjoyed it.)

Call for Submissions

Send submissions to:

Leisure Arts, one of the world’s largest publishers and distributors of
lifestyle and instructional materials, is accepting submissions for the
Second Edition of our newest annual holiday publication, Christmas

Christmas Traditions was created because we at Leisure Arts know that
the personal customs of Christmas are what bring the holiday—and our
loved ones—nearer to us each year. Bearing this in mind, we took extra
care to ensure that every page of the first edition of this beautiful
book featured meaningful ways to enrich the holiday experience. 

We would like to include your uniquely personal story in the second
edition.  Describe for us how you create gifts destined to become
treasured keepsakes or make decorations to evoke tender memories.
Share with us the recipe your family looks forward to every year and
tell us the story behind it.  Describe the holiday traditions your
family observes every year—whether the traditions are new or have been
passed down from generation to generation.  Tell us the story of your
favorite family tradition.

Submissions should be 120-200 words, written in first person, be
original and true. We happily accept multiple submissions.  If your
submission is chosen for inclusion in the book, you will be contacted;
however, Leisure Arts cannot acknowledge receipt of individual
submissions or report upon each submission’s status. 

Submissions accepted via email only.

If we use your submission, you’ll receive publication credit and one
free copy of the book. No monetary compensation will be made.

By submitting, you certify that you are the creator of the material and
that it does not infringe upon any third party’s trademark or
copyright.  You retain ownership and copyright of your contribution,
but your submission grants Leisure Arts unencumbered, non-exclusive,
perpetual license to reuse the work, in whole or in part, in any of its
publications, Web sites, or archives.

Leisure Arts reserves the right to make grammatical and editorial
corrections, or to edit the work for length or stylistic requirements
according to the judgment of the editorial staff.
