Gravity Pulls You In, a work in progress, is an anthology of beautifully written essays that describe the experiences of parents raising children on the autism spectrum. We are looking for the piercing truth that can be funny, irreverent, illuminating, tender, moving, but always deeply respectful. We invite all voices that will be at once familiar to any parent but also specific to those moving in the world of autism. When the reader picks up this book, it will be either out of recognition or curiosity but when they put it down, the simple and complicated details from these stories will create the possibility of greater connection and understanding among us all.
We are currently accepting submissions of prose and poetry, not to exceed 5,000 words. Deadline: January 15, 2007. Please send entire manuscript with SASE to K. Anderson, 53 Christopher Street, Wakefield, RI 02879. It will not be possible to return manuscripts.
Please see our website (www.gravitypullsyouin.com) for more details.
