Non-profit press Portuguese Heritage Publications of California (PHPC) has a wonderful new book project for which I hope you will consider contributing non-fiction and poetry. We are currently collecting non-fiction stories about California's Portuguese-Americans, historical stories, family remembrances, humorous tales, romantic trysts, legends and more. Frank Gaspar is writing the introduction and Tony Goulart is the project coordinator.
Send us that funny anecdote about Tio Carlos or how Lucinda and Henrique met on the pier in San Pedro. Send us the parable about the family winery in San Jose. The saga of the baker's wife in Merced. The adventures of the mayor in Artesia. The story about your neighbor's farm and his election to the senate.
Write from memory, research or interview someone. It's up to you.
The deadline is March 28th, 2014. Feel free to forward this to others and spread the word.
We are interested in all sorts of immigrant stories about Portuguese-Americans in California-- stories should be 2-4 pages in length and include a photo when possible.
