Gratitude Prayers

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

GRATITUDE PRAYERS:

Prayers, Poems, and Prose for Everyday Thankfulness 

Submissions close Friday, February 3, 2012 

The purpose of GRATITUDE PRAYERS is to encourage individuals to appreciate the blessings in their lives and to cultivate an attitude of everyday thankfulness. Taking time to reflect on what’s good will help readers refocus their minds, which will increase one’s personal happiness.

Chapters have not yet been determined. The book will be packaged like Comfort Prayers and Serenity Prayers. In general, a maximum of 15 lines is best for each piece as this is the amount of text that will fit on one book page. If your selection will not work within 15 lines, you can submit a maximum of 30 lines (the equivalent of two book pages). However, I can only accept a few of the longer pieces so it may limit your chances of having a longer piece accepted. For prose pieces, a maximum of 130 words will fit on one book page. All prayers should be interfaith. 

The final manuscript for GRATITUDE PRAYERS is due February 29 and reading the submissions for GRATITUDE PRAYERS is a top priority. Andrews McMeel Publishing hopes to publish the book Fall 2012, but it may be delayed until Spring 2013. If you have submitted for any of my other projects, please note that I'm far behind on reading submissions. I don't have an assistant, so it's a challenge to keep up with everything. Thanks for your continued patience.

The compensation for one-time rights is one complimentary copy of the book. Reprints are okay. The advance for GRATITUDE PRAYERS was quite small, so regretfully I'm not able to pay an additional monetary amount. As most of you know, publishing has changed drastically with fewer outlets for books. Even though e-publishing is generally successful for a lot of writers, the format isn't popular for gift books such as mine. However, I will do everything I can to find additional recognition for contributors. My books receive major publicity and have been featured in major magazines and newspapers such as USA Today, Family Circle, and Woman's Day as well as a "Dear Abby" column. Many of my contributors have been contacted by card companies to have their work featured on a card or plaque as a result of exposure in one of my anthologies. 

Mail submissions to June Cotner, P.O. Box 2765, Poulsbo, WA 98370. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) with sufficient return postage and mark “GRATITUDE PRAYERS” on the lower left-hand corner of your envelope. Please put all of your contact info on each submission. All submissions must be postmarked by February 3, 2012.

It takes me much longer to read and respond to submissions sent via email, so I much prefer snail mail submissions. If you live outside the U.S., you are welcome to email me no more than three submissions to june@junecotner.com. Please use GRATITUDE + <name of selection> as your subject line and include all of your contact info on each submission.  

You are welcome to forward this announcement to other interested writers.
