Call for Submissions

Cape Cod. Land of sunshine and childhood memories. Most people have at least one Cape Story to tell, whether it was visiting friends with a beach house, a wild weekend in Provincetown, a cousin's wedding in Chatham... have you ever visited Cape Cod?

We want your memories.

Okay, really. It never seriously occurred to me to post this call here, but I just received a wonderful submission from a fellow A to Z participant Lisa Claro about her childhood memories of Lieutenant Island. Very cool. And I thought, maybe there are other blogging friends who'd like to send stories or photographs? Why not ask?

This year marks the 50th anniversary of when John F. Kennedy signed the bill creating the Cape Cod National Seashore. To honor the occasion, CapeWomenOnline magazine is collecting short stories, memories, and photographs for our Summer 2011 Issue.

The official call for submissions is in the Spring Issue here.

The official submission guidelines are here.

As it states in our guidelines, we don't currently pay for submissions but do offer advertising in trade. (like, for your books, your business, your blog...) and you will get a byline and an about the author blurb with live links to your website(s).

So why not? Send us your memories! Submissions should go to the Editor - me - at Katie@CapeWomenOnline.com ... and thanks in advance for sharing ;-)

  1. Hi, Katie. This sounds wonderful! I noticed in the submission guidelines that the magazine serves as a venue for both the Cape and the Islands. May I ask, will memories of the Islands be considered for this issue, or is it strictly for the Cape Seashore? I have tons of memories of the Vineyard I'd love to write about.

    Either way, I'm happy to have discovered the magazine, I'm looking forward to reading it. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi Katie - Thanks for the mention, and thanks for the call out. Writing that piece brought back so many memories and emotions. I sat here boo-hooing while it flooded back. Some of my favorite memories were made at the Cape.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and opting to follow. I followed you back. :) I'm looking forward to getting to know you through your writing and your blog.
