Deseret Book Accepting Submissions for Series on Mormon Women

By June 11, 2010


Esteemed Friends of the JI,

I have an exciting announcement for all of you interested in Mormon women’s studies and who have the desire to be published! Deseret Book is creating a new series called Women of Faith in the Latter Days and is calling to YOU for submissions. The volumes will be primarily story-and-faith-based and will provide an important opportunity to generate interest in Mormon women in popular LDS culture, with an aim to inspire deeper research at present and in the future.  We need thorough, historically-based research (which you are all so good at!) in conjunction with narratives of faith and testimony. Below you will find the prospectus for the volumes. Share the story of an LDS woman you admire and submit an article for any volume listed. Feel free to send an email to the address below for additional details. Thanks all!  Brittany
