Call For Stories - Have Milk, Will Travel: Adventures in Breastfeeding

Established author and editor seeks short stories for an edited collection of breastfeeding (mis)adventures. "Have Milk, Will Travel" reveals the lighter side of nursing and throws a lifeline of humor to mothers in the thick of lactation. Knowing that other mothers nurse in crazy places, go to extreme lengths to regulate milk supply, or unwittingly pump breast milk while on the radio, readers can be assured that they are not alone in having lost all modesty and that, in fact, they may be doing better than most. "Have Milk, Will Travel" collects stories that highlight in embarrassing detail the trials, tribulations, and laugh-out-loud turbulence of life as the one-stop milk shop.

Ideal stories will be 2-4 pages, though shorter poems and longer stories will also be considered. The book is already under contract with a publisher and is due out later this year. All contributors will receive a copy of the book. The Pump Station moms will get special recognition in the book and will be invited to participate in a reading and book-signing in August.

Please submit stories for consideration by March 25 to
