does your kid ride the short bus?

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

Editors Yantra Bertelli, Jennifer Silverman and Sarah Talbot are looking for submissions for My Baby Rides the Short Bus, an upcoming anthology to be published by PM Press.

“We are seeking submissions from a diverse group of parents raising special needs kids who feel marginalized by their subculture status (economics, lifestyle, orientation, religion/atheism) and underrepresented in print.

Got tips on how to stay sane during the IEP process when you don’t believe in the system to begin with? Felt you had to hide you radical political books while the Early Intervention Folks come over? Found yourself stuck a mainstream world of special needs parenting that you don’t fit into?

Submit your stories to a upcoming anthology that features writing from parents in the know about what it’s like to raise “special needs” kids — with no sugar coating or the ‘you will dream new dreams’ kind of crap we’re subjected to by mainstream media. Unfortunately we can’t pay, but all contributors will receive two copies of the book.”
