From the call:

Please look at the list of names below and send your top 3 choices in descending order to laura.bauer@cgu.edu. If you’re interested in writing more than one entry, please send me your top 5 choices.

You’ll notice there are several women who will have a “D,” “P,” “W,” and/or “A” following their name which signals that they rightfully belong to more than one category. Due to the organization of the book, names have been placed in categories for which they have been most formally recognized, however, all their roles should be addressed in their individual entry.

Each entry is brief, 1000 words (approximately 4 double-spaced pages) unless otherwise noted with an asterisk.

Contributors receive full credit for any entry they write. Deadlines will be assigned throughout November and early December 2017.
