Call for Submissions: Cup of Comfort

Monday, February 05, 2007

As Oprah Winfrey has often said, parenting is the most difficult and important job in the world -- even more so for single mothers, who single-handedly face all the usual parenting challenges, plus a whole set of unique ones. While being a single mom can be tough at times, it also brings many joys and rewards. And those blessings, along with the achievements and other positive aspects of single motherhood, too often go unrecognized. So the editor of the bestselling Cup of Comfort book series is now seeking personal stories for publication in an anthology that honors and celebrates single mothers.

Stories must be original and true, and can be dramatic or humorous. Preference is given to slice-of-life stories that read like compelling fiction, that speak a positive universal truth about the human spirit, and that both entertain and inspire readers.
