How to Pack for Church
Camp is an online anthology project that's separate from, yet friends with, Rock & Sling.
We seek creative nonfiction under 1,000 words that’s related to experiences
at summer camp.
Were you envious of your friend at a Lutheran camp
who had a dance, while your camp forbade the use of boomboxes save for
worship? Did you have a moment of crystalline self-awareness while cooking over
a fire at Scout Camp? We want to know.
Although we have a fondness for church-camp stories, the
work need not be about a Christian or other religiously affiliated program. We’re
much less interested in the devotional or didactic, and are hungry for what
surprises us, hits us in the gut, makes us think. The stories can be uplifting,
bawdy, itchy, touching, melancholy. They just need to have happened to you.
Submissions must be the author’s original work. We will
consider previously published material so long as the author informs us of the
work’s history and retains the rights.
