Adams Media Looking for Teacher Stories

"Teaching" by jmurawski Creative Commons

Thanks to Donna V for the heads up on this. The deadline is coming up fast at the end of this month, so get your stories in as soon as you can. (The bolding below is mine).

- CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS -
MY FIRST YEAR IN THE CLASSROOM
to be published by Adams Media (http://www.adamsmedia.com/)

I am looking for fifty true, inspiring stories by teachers remembering their first year in the
classroom.

Stories should run between 850 and 1000 words, and will be organized along the lines of the school
calendar, illustrating the learning curve experienced by new teachers.

PAYMENT: Writers will receive $100 for each accepted story as well as a complimentary copy of the anthology.

I look forward to reading your submission.

Stephen D. Rogers, Editor
MY FIRST YEAR IN THE CLASSROOM
DEADLINE: September 30, 2008

- Facing the first day

- Meeting the students

- Surprising the students

- Bonding with faculty and staff

- Being surprised by the students

- Watching the students bloom

- Saying good-bye

From the hilariously obsessive/compulsive pre-class preparation of a rookie English professor to the
poignant lesson one stalwart third grader and his peers teach their novice teacher about love and
acceptance, this moving collection is sure to inspire new and veteran teachers alike.

Stories should be emailed (inserted as a text file into the email or attached as a rich text file) to:
stephen@stephendrogers.com with the word "Submission" somewhere in the subject line. Please remember to include your full name and contact information both in your email and the story (if attached).
