Call for Submissions: Kissing in the Chapel, Praying in the Frat House: Wrestling with Faith and College

What is your story of wrestling with faith as a college student?
How has your faith changed as a result of your college education, personal relationships, or cultural experiences?
What, if anything, does spirituality and God have to do with college life?
We want to publish your true stories of faith and life in college! The book of collected essays will be arranged by topic areas. Essay topics may include:
  • faith, doubt, and struggles to believe
  • sex and sexuality
  • service learning
  • faith off campus
  • does God have a plan for me?
  • relationships with those of other faiths and no faith
While the book is intended particularly to resource Christian congregations and church-related colleges, stories from those of many faith traditions — or no faith tradition — are welcomed. In short: essays addressing any experience of faith and life in college will be considered for publication
Please submit a clean and polished Word file noting your full contact information to, faithandcollegebook@gmail.com by July 15, 2013. Authors of essays selected for inclusion in the collection will be notified by late summer.
Age Limit: Writers should be 18 to 30 years old.  Word Count: Aim for 6-14 pages, double-spaced.  Submission Process: This is an open submissions process.  Publisher: The book is under contract with Alban Publishing
