For the Love of Michael; Request for Submissions!
Received this request for submissions below from the wonderfully talented Lorette C. Luzajic this morning and thought I would pass it on! A while ago a poem of mine was published in the anthology, goodbye Billie Jean; the meaning of Michael Jackson and it afforded me the pleasure of meeting Lorette! Her boundless talent combined with our common love of all things MJ made us fast friends. I am happy to support her in this project in any way I can. I know I have many wonderful writers and artists friends on here so I thought I would share.
Oh..and buy the book above!
Seeking Submissions for Michael Jackson Fanthology
I have already created an anthology about Michael Jackson featuring a variety of professional writers sharing commentary from a variety of positive, negative and mixed perspectives. Now I would like to create an anthology with more inspirational, fan based perspectives. Many ordinary people would like to share what Michael meant to them, or talk about their favourite songs or special moments, or how Michael inspired them in some way. Many people might want to have their say about how Michael’s art or performance or humanitarian work impacted them.
I’m looking for interesting, inspirational essays or poems of any kind.
I have a soft spot for unusual work, clever work, and good poetry.
I am also looking for visual art for the cover. Please submit links to your artwork about Michael Jackson. Art can be painting, or it can be tattoos, costumes, photos taken by you, jewelry, sculpture, mosaics, etc.
I am undertaking this book project independently, out of my own pocket, so I cannot offer any kind of compensation at this time. Accepted submissions will remain copyright and property of their authors, save for the right to use it in the book.
Feel free to ask questions, and please pass this notice around to all friends and fans who might have something to share about our King of Pop.
The book is tentatively titled: “For the Love of Michael- uplifting stories from fans all over the world.”
