Christian writers are invited to submit your story to the upcoming compilation book 360 Degrees of Grief to be published by Selah Press. This project fulfills a passion for me to provide comfort to people in the midst and aftermath of a crisis. When my mother died, I found that most grief books only spoke of grief from a singular perspective. In reality, when tragedy strikes there are many family members and friends who are impacted differently. 360 Degrees of Grief is designed to reach people with stories of hope from different perspectives.
Your personal story is vital to the mission of this book series designed to offer comfort while in the midst of grief caused by a variety of factors. Grief can be caused by death, failure, loss, separation, along with a whole host of other causes and impacts each person differently. I appreciate your honesty and transparency as you share your stories.
Each story in the book 360 Degrees of Grief will be given a dedicated chapter. The length of your article should be between 500 words and 2500 words.
Each submission should stick to one instance of grief, but multiple submissions are welcome if you want the opportunity to include other stories. Please refrain from using first and last names of the individuals in your stories. Deadline for submission is January 15, 2014. Projected publication date of 360 Degrees of Grief is February 2014. Please also note that Selah Press, LLC reserves the right to decline any submissions and a signed release will be required if your article is chosen for the book.
360 Degrees of Grief will be initially available in both print and digital formats published by Selah Press, LLC. The primary objective of this project is to create an inexpensive resource available to anyone during a time of need.
All submissions will be reviewed and edited via a collaborative body without the author’s name attached. This method of anonymous review and editing will ensure that each article is reviewed for its content only and not by the notoriety of the author. (If you are interested in being part of this collaborative body please let me know.)
Please email your submission to me at firstname.lastname@example.org in a Word document. When you submit your work please include an up-to-date bio, 300 dpi photograph, your social media contact information, website, signed contract and mailing address so I can send you a copy of the book when it publishes.
360 Degrees of Grief will be published by Selah Press author Kayla Fioravanti. Samples of my writings on grief can be found here and are only provided as examples of my work. Your article should be from your personal story using your voice. The mission of Selah Press, LLC is to publish book that glorify God in a variety of literary genres.
