Call For Submissions - Lone Star Ma #11
Calling for submissions for Issue #11 of Lone Star Ma: The Magazine of Progressive Texas Parenting And Children's Issues!!!
For this issue, we are looking for feature articles on the effects of lax enforcement of environmental standards on children in Texas. We are looking for articles on how the Right-Wing War on Women affects mothers and children. Specific other topics we might be interested in: social services funding in Texas, education in Texas, urban farming for busy families, the Texas State Board of Education, libraries, sex education, breastfeeding, safely avoiding insect-borne tropical diseases. We do accept articles on other themes as well if they strike our fancy, so send whatever you think we should consider and we will ponder it. Things are bad for the women and children of Texas these days, folks. We need to spread the word and save our kids' futures from the likes of those who only care about the wealthy and the powerful. Not on our backs. Not on our children's backs. Not now. Not ever. We will stop them.
Please see the general submission information below for guidelines and please consider submitting to our various departments.
Lone Star Ma wants poetry. Lone Star Ma wants mama fiction. Lone Star Ma wants brilliant articles. What have you got?
The deadline for submissions has been extended to September 30th.
Raise your voices.
