Call for Submissions: Anthology of "Bad Dates"

Editors for the anthology, 50 Worst Dates, are soliciting nonfiction accounts about real-life "bad date" experiences. Did your date have terrible manners? Overshared? Drank too much? Or was there just a series of bad events?

Entries should be between 200-800 words and give a quick but detailed overview of the most uncanny, strange, humorous, embarrassing, or downright awful encounter you've ever had on a date.

Deadline is Dec. 15, 2010.

Entries accepted for publication will be collected in an anthology of brief takes about experiences with the dating world, published in Ebook form. All published entrants will receive a byline and short bio. Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your name and city of residence will be included with your accepted story. Please understand that the editors may make slight changes to the length, vocabulary, and/or title of your story; however, if your piece is chosen for the anthology, the general content and meaning will remain the same.

Email submissions to:

Is there any form of payment or compensation for writers whose pieces are included?

I don't think so. You may receive a copy of the book, but I would contact the editor directly to inquire.
