The editor of an essay collection, "Aftermath: Memoirs of Growing Up in the South", is making a call for male contributors for an expansion of the manuscript, which is currently in developmental editing with an academic press. The editor is seeking memoirs of 1500-4000 words from male writers born between 1960 and 1975 who grew up in the South (in a state other than Alabama, for which there are already ample contributions) at the end of or after the Civil Rights movement. If interested, please send a synopsis about your proposed submission, including its historical context, place, and time period, via e-mail. Please do not send the submission before the proposal. Send any questions via e-mail as well.
