Calling all teen girl writers!
Magazine editor Amy Goldwasser wants your writing for a collection of essays. She's looking for:
"...girls, age 13-18, who’d like to submit a piece of personal non-fiction for consideration ... Those are about the only guidelines — absolutely any subject matter (so far everything from a Christian acoustic guitar player on the importance of dressing modestly to an obsessive diatribe against Condi Rice to making out with a gay prom date to learning to cook to a parent’s drinking), any geography (great to get away from LA-NY), any length, and from writers of any race, class, etc. If she’s more comfortable, the writer can remain anonymous — as long as she gives me her age, location, and a promise that she’s not making s[tuff] up. They can be important or fun, about shopping or stealing, whatever."
Visit the Freakonomics blog for more information. Submissions and correspondence should go to firstname.lastname@example.org with “my essay” in the subject line. The deadline is Friday, April 7. Good luck!
