Reinventing Midlife: Women's Stories of Transformation Through the Spartan Race
Guidelines for Submissions
Reinventing Midlife stories are inspirational, true stories about women who have altered course in midlife and have decided to change their health, take on a challenge, or defy aging and have been transformed in body/mind/spirit through the process of training for and completing a Spartan OCR. It is a personal story that draws the reader into the heroine's journey of overcoming physical or mental obstacles in order to overcome the obstacles on the course. They are inspiring! They make the reader think, "If she can do it, I can do it!"
A great submission will paint a picture, draw the reader in, will often stir emotion and have the reader cheering for the author. It's a story that helps other women see themselves in your story, helps them believe they can do it too because of your example. A good story is inspiring, motivating, hopeful, causes tears, laughter, goose bumps or any combination of these.
If we publish your story, you will be paid $200 one month after publication of the book and you will receive 10 free copies of the book.
