Looking for woman essayists [X-posted to several communities]

The public radio station where I work, WEKU-FM in Richmond, KY, is looking for women to write essays on their driving core principles for a Women’s History Month special series “This We Believe.” We will publish all submissions on our website and select some of them to put on the air. Essay submission deadline is February 5.


Here’s the press release we’ve been sending out in case you’d like to pass this along to anyone else:

WEKU SEEKS ESSAYISTS FOR "THIS WE BELIEVE" WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH SPECIAL SERIES
Public radio station continues a series featuring the driving principles of listeners


(Richmond, KY) WEKU Radio celebrates Women’s History Month in March with a Kentucky-made series, "This We Believe."

”This We Believe,” which is in its second year, is inspired by "This I Believe," a series created by radio news pioneer Edward R. Murrow and resurrected for public radio by Jay Allison. The series features statements of personal belief from a wide range of individuals. People from all walks of life are encouraged to share their convictions, often with profound and powerful results.

WEKU is again collecting essays from women for a special compilation program. All women are invited to submit a 350-500 word essay to WEKU describing their philosophies. All participating essayists will be published on WEKU's website and some essays will be selected for broadcasting during regular programs and for inclusion in a WEKU special. The submission deadline is February 5th, 2010.



If you’d like to know more, you can check out our website – www.weku.fm/tib2010.html – there’s an email link on the page if you have any questions. :)
Thanks,
Nik <3
