Rhythm of the Home was created as a collaborative voice, a way to open the world to perspectives on educating and raising our children. It has always been our hope that through sharing the voices of many, we would all one day look back and be proud of the changes that we had made, the new paths we set for the next generation.
It is with that thought in mind that we invite our contributors and readers to submit a query for the Rhythm of the Home book. This book will be a collaborative effort that weaves together crafts, recipes and cooking, reflections, prose, poetry, short stories, art work, etc. for our readers to enjoy.
The book will be arranged into the four categories of warmth, play, celebration, and connection, as in our magazine, and will also be seasonal in nature.
At this time we are accepting queries for consideration in the first book.
To be considered, we ask that you submit a query with your proposed title, detailed description, season, and a sample of your photography and writing. (If you are a past contributor, we would be happy to use your piece as consideration along with other samples of your work.)
Please submit your query by March 21st, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, only new work which has never been published or submitted elsewhere will be considered for publication. If you have any questions regarding the query process, please direct them to email@example.com by March 7th, 2012.
All those who submit a query will be notified through email regarding acceptance.
Rhythm of the Home has carefully weighed many options for putting Rhythm of the Home onto the printed page. It is our honor to now be working with Valarie Budayr and her team at Audrey Press to do just that. Valarie has created a unique publishing house that breaks with the traditions and norms of the literary world and involves the author in the entire process, trusting in their instincts and visions.
“When we weave collaborative play into the fabric of our everyday life, we open the door to transforming our relationships, our viewpoints, and perspectives on creating happiness and the joy of innovating with our children.” -Valarie Budayr
