Second issue of Ripples slated; submissions needed
- Published: January 7, 2015
Following the success of its first issue, which was published in 2014, the YS Senior Center has announced that it is now accepting submissions for the second issue of Ripples, an elder literary journal. Submissions to the journal should be written by or feature an elder or elders, age 55 or older, and be connected to Yellow Springs or Miami Township. Authors may be of any age. Submissions may be articles, essays, memoirs or poems, and will be selected competitively. Photographs that relate to the written material are welcome.
Two additional components have been added this year: the cover art, a black and white artistic photograph, will be selected from submissions, and one work of fiction, at a maximum of 1,600 words, will be selected.
Guidelines and applications for submission are available at http://www.seniorcitizenscenter.org or at the Senior Center, located at 227 Xenia Ave. Deadline for submissions is March 13. One thousand journals will be printed. Copies will be distributed at the YSSC annual meeting in June, and a limited number of free copies will be available to the public. For more information, contact Suzanne Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2014 issue is available at the Senior Center.
