Since 2005, Adventures for the Average Woman has been a stepping stone for writers on the arduous climb up the steep path to publication. It has been our honor and privilege to be the first opportunity for many writers to get their start as well as to help promote the books of up-and-coming writers. Although we are but a small piece in the publishing puzzle, we have contributed to the careers of dozens of writers to date. Here’s what some of them have to say:

Call to Artists: ReVisions '10 to Premiere on EARTH DAY
As some of you may know, the nonprofit Eco-LogicalART Gallery has fostered the creation of huge new artworks, painted on recycled vinyl billboards, which are then installed back up on billboards. To date our "drive-by" exhibits have been on display across Los Angeles and San Francisco and been seen over 40 million times.
Planning is now under way to create several more pieces to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Eco-LA is looking for artists who would like to participate. Generally on the 14 x 48 foot "canvases" we do triptychs—each image being 10 x 13 feet. Though I like the art to stand on its own—and not necessarily be directly "Earth Day" themed, image that could be construed as "green" are also desirable.

2009 was a difficult year for a lot of people. In response to the lost jobs, lost homes, major and minor tragedies, personal frustrations, heartbreak, etc., I am working on a project that called "2009 Was A Rough Year" and I am hoping that you would be willing to help me.
I would need you to:
1. Take a picture that represents the worst, most heartbreaking, or most frustrating moment you experienced in 2009.
2. E-mail it to me at email@example.com
3. Include as much or as little additional information as you would like.
I'm planning on turning this into a slide show and making a website. If you want to remain anonymous you can.
Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested.
Thank you for your help.
