Quilters Newsletter is seeking submissions for a regularly occurring feature called “300 Words About Quilting.” If you have a quilting story you’d like to share, one that’s funny, poignant, or anything in between—and you can tell it in 300 words or less—we want to read it. We're looking for real stories by real quilters—you don't have to be a quilt celebrity for your story to be important to other quilters or to touch others' lives. Several stories will be accepted for each issue, and contributors will receive both payment and complimentary copies of the issues in which their stories appear. Contributors should be prepared to provide a high-resolution headshot upon acceptance. Topics and deadlines are:
DEADLINE: May 1, 2016 - The Worst Thing Quilting Has Done for Me
DEADLINE: July 1, 2016 - The Most Unusual Influence on My Quilting
DEADLINE: September 1, 2016 - If I Were a Quilter 100 Years Ago ...
DEADLINE: November 1, 2016 - My Ugliest Quilt
DEADLINE: January 1, 2017 - If I Were Still a Quilter 100 Years From Now
DEADLINE: March 1, 2017 - The Quilt I Didn't Want to Make
