Call For Submissions

Call For Submissions


Are you a teacher who has experienced or witnessed a life-changing event taking place in the classroom? When you think of all the students who have entered your life, is there one special person or situation which stands out above the rest?

This is a unique opportunity to acknowledge the special event in your professional life, and to share your experiece with an appreciative audience.

Adams Media, publishers of A Cup of Comfort and The Rocking Chair series, is compiling an anthology of stories for a new book tentatively titled Teaching Miracles, to be published in late 2006. The book will contain true stories written by people of all ages—that celebrate the ability of the shared classroom experience to positively influence our lives. They are stories that show that education doesn't just come from books, and also that it's not just a one-way street, flowing from teacher to students.

Optimistic, heartfelt, and often humorous, these stories might have such themes as:

This Kid Is My Hero

  • A teacher discovers that one of his "troubled" students has a lot more to offer at school by finding out the amazing things he's doing at home.

What I Learned From You

  • Who taught what to whom, and who really learned more?

The Fringe Benefits Of Teaching

  • An educator teaching extension classes in writing learns first-hand about the potential for lasting and meaningful impact on a number of lives that comes along with his paycheck.

Me Gusta Educacion

  • An English-As-A-Second-Language teacher sees for herself what her students are up against when she visits a foreign country where she doesn't speak a word of the language.

Overcoming Your Fears

  • A rookie teacher comes to terms with making the call to that greatest of all classroom assets: parents!



I'm looking for concise, heartfelt stories that express what you gained from your experience in the classroom, be it a specific incident, milestone, or an ongoing process that enabled you to grow personally or professionally.

Stories should have a clear beginning, middle, and end, and be approximately 500-2,000 words. Contributors whose letters are included in the book will receive a payment of $50. The author whose story is chosen as the most inspirational will receive $100. Of much greater value, our contributors will receive national writing exposure with a major publisher, a complimentary copy of the book, and bragging rights.

For guidelines and samples check out the Writing Tips and Submission Guidelines, and Story Samples sections of this blog. If you have additional questions or would like to send a submission please email me at thorntonwriter@msn.com

Deadline is April 1, 2006

Happy Writing!

Brian

Editor, Teaching Miracles
