      Book Publisher: The Key Publishing House Inc., publisher of academic
      and non-academic books, Toronto, Ontario.

      Submissions are being sought for an anthology about writing and
      publishing by women with experience in writing and publishing about
      family. Possible subjects: using life experience; networking; unique
      issues women must overcome; formal education; queries and proposals;
      conference participation; self-publishing; teaching tips. Tips on
      writing about family: creative nonfiction, poetry, short stories,
      nonfiction, novels.

      Practical, concise, how-to articles with bullets/headings have proven
      the most helpful to readers. Please avoid writing too much about "me"
      and concentrate on what will help the reader. No previously published,
      co-written, or simultaneously submitted material.
