CALL FOR ENTRIES: Humor writers

(I hope it's okay that I'm posting this here.)

I’m putting together an anthology with the working title How Am I Normal? This project will be a humorous collection of first-person accounts of surviving a crazy childhood or family life and somehow managing to turn out just fine. No mean-spirited rants or depressing tales, please. Tell us about eccentric parents, unusual living situations, and quirky circumstances that somehow helped mold you into the whack job, I mean well-balanced person you are today. Think Chicken Soup but ironic, hip, and edgy.

First-time authors are encouraged to submit. There’s no entry fee or any other costs to authors. Deadline is 8/1/10. For full submission guidelines, go to Spread the word--this will be fun!

Linda - that's very cool.

Once school is over, I'll see if my muse comes up with anything to submit. I don't know. I had a crazy childhood, but I'm still quite irritated by the whole thing, and as for turning out okay, well, that's a matter of debate.

But I might be able to do something with that. :)

Does it have to be about me? All the weird stuff happened to my sister. I have lots of stories about her.

Mary, as long as you can write it in first person I'm thinking you should probably be good to go!

This is a pretty neat idea. I'll have to see if I can come up with an entry.
