Paper Comets, Winter Issue: Contributor Call!

Today, we are excited to announce the theme for the winter issue of Paper Comets! For two months we have collected your feedback and have placed an immense amount of effort to utilize the constructive criticism received in order to make Freckled Minds work in an improved, cohesive matter. After many weeks of deliberation, the topic has been set!

Revelation. As we grow, our perceptions of various aspects change, and perhaps we uncover something that is important that we haven't discovered or made known to us before. Often, these revelations are most abundant during our adolescent years, where we are slowly morphing from young children to beautiful, independent fine women. Where it be that today's beauty standards are difficult to define, or allowing yourself to cry in a place that says to conceal your feels, to finding strength in the tiniest places, perhaps in a coffee shop while reading Pride and Prejudice with your back against the brick wall or watching Downton Abbey wallowed up in blankets at seven in the morning, there is something out there that everyone has discovered, and something out there that everyone can share.

Yup! Many of our feedback responses have asked to have an even combination of all of the art forms. In order for us to accomplish this, we will ask our fellow contributors to rank their top three preferred mediums. Later, we'll notify what mediums you'll be using. This does sound a bit restricting-- we're not a huge fan of this method, either, but since we don't have a large base of readers and contributors to draw in from and  would like some variety, we believe this is the best way, for now, for allowing this aspect to run.

There are others changes that will be implemented, but they are diminutive in size, so there's no need to sweat about it. 

October 5th - 19th: Contributor submission form will be open.
October 22nd: Email sent out about what medium(s) will be used.
November 12th: Author photo, extra photo(s), bio, and guest post due.
November 19th: Content submissions due.
December 7th: Issue released.
