Literary Cottage is currently seeking entries for an anthology to be published by Adams Media next summer, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original Woodstock Festival. Adams Media pays $100 and one copy of the book. Literary Cottage offers prizes of $100, $75, and $50 to top three stories respectively.

For WOODSTOCK REVISITED, we are seeking fifty stories (850-1100 words) written by people who attended the 1969 Woodstock Festival. This anthology will document the event itself, but will also provide a portrait of America as that tumultuous decade came to a close. Stories
should be historical within the context of 1969 and yet unique to your experience. Stories must be TRUE, 850-1100 words, vivid, and substantive.

Please carefully review the details and sample story provided on the Woodstock '69 Guidelines" page available on the Literary Cottage website: www.literarycottage .com/woodstock. html

Please, please pass on the word regarding WOODSTOCK REVISITED, as we need fifty solid stories from people who attended the festival in 1969. You can write an "as told to" story if you have friends or family who attended. Go ahead, hunt someone down. Interview questions are posted on the link above.
