Accepting Applications: Characters Literary Magazine

An announcement recently came my way from Katya's Non-Profit Marketing Blog about a new literary magazine featuring fiction, nonfiction, and photography about and by the nonprofit sector. Called Characters, they are currently soliciting submissions from changemakers who have worked or volunteered for a good cause. With as abundant of a civic and nonprofit life as we have in Minnesota, I've no doubt we'll be able to submit a healthy range of compelling short fiction, personal essays, and photography from none other than you. If you've got a powerful local story to share, this is your chance to tell it to the world!

Tell me your story. I'll publish it.

My friend Mark Rovner and I do a lot of talking about stories. How you need to tell them. How you should tell them. And so on.
But here's the thing. One of the most basic principles of telling a story is, show don't tell. So we've decided to not just tell people about good stories but to show great stories.
We have launched a new literary magazine for and by you. It's called Characters, and it will feature fiction, nonfiction and photography from great communicators who have worked or volunteered for a good cause. That means you. Have a short story you've been working on for years? A memoir? Send it in. Really. This is your chance. We're giving you the greatest gift of all: a deadline for your dream.
 Know any writers or artistes? Please spread the word and send people here.                                                                                                         (UPDATE: It costs $10 to submit. I was asked to add this to the post so folks know up front. Point taken.)
