ISO Writers Born Between 1960-1982

At last…my generation is getting its own voice with this call for submissions (though, as noted in this article in Sunday's Washington Post, this officially is the "dumbest generation"):

Last call for submissions for A Generation Defining Itself: Volume 8

This book series is a platform from which a generation (born 1960 to 1982) is speaking out about its realities, dispelling the narrow, simplified stereotypes created by the mass media and commercial marketing.

We are beginning to finalize the selection of texts and will still consider texts sent by December 31st. All genres sought, from poetry and lyrics to prose and essays. (Note: according to the web site, previously published work is okay.)

All inquiries/submissions to; for more details and complete guidelines, please go to
