"Daddy's Girls": An Anthology about Fatherless Daughters
We are inviting women and girls of color who grew up with little, no, or strained relationships with their fathers to submit their stories about how it impacted their lives, relationships, love, expectations, careers, plans, family, self-esteem, successes, mindset, etc. We are looking for short stories, essays, letters, poems, drawings, photographs, and memoirs. The circumstances for being “fatherless” include but are not limited to abandonment, death, mental illness, substance abuse, incarceration, and fathers who were physically present but who were emotionally, mentally or otherwise unavailable.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday, June 18, 2017 (Father's Day).
