Enter Your Back to School Memoir in the Anthology

Back to School Memoir Anthology Fall 2013

In honor of the upcoming school year, Karenzo Media has decided to ask our readers to share their school  memoirs with us. We will compile all entries into a What’s Your Story anthology, and everyone who is included in the anthology will receive a free copy (ebook).

Please keep entries to under 1000 words.

You may submit your memoir as creative nonfiction or poetry.

TOPIC: A memory from school (elementary to high school) that has particular meaning for you – an embarrassing moment, a turning point, a good or bad teacher, etc.


whats your story

 PLEASE READ: All entries will be used solely for the anthology and none of your work or your name will be used for any purpose other than to be published in the anthology. You retain all rights to the work. By submitting an entry you give us permission to reprint your work and your name only in the What’s Your Story? anthology. We reserve the right to choose to not publish stories that we find offensive, unedited, or otherwise not ready for publication.

Memoir is so often rife with emotional language and content, and we want it to be. We must be able to write from the gut the truth of our lives. Please understand that “offensive” means overtly pornographic or radically violent pieces. We DO expect work submitted in this genre to be truthful, and that may involve – will most likely involve – highly charged emotional and controversial issues, as well as the use of curse words, etc. This is welcomed and encouraged!

Deadline: August 1, 2013
