This is for the ladies who are mad about their shoes. If you are having a love affair with the shoes you wear, well, I've got an anthology call for you. Princess Dominique.com has issued a call for non-fiction essays by women about their love affair with shoes. Only 1000 words with a payment of $100 and a pair of SoleMates. The deadline is August 1. You can check it out here, but beware the site is full of shoes.
UPDATE : My apologies, Ladies!! This was posted in 2010. I saw the April 7 date and thought it recent. So sorry!
You folks do know that the shoe idea has a lot of promise for a short story, don't you? :) I really hate the idea of a wasted post.
