Call for cycling stories

Publishing house Casagrande Press in Seattle, Washington, is seeking submissions for its forthcoming book, Cycling’s Greatest Misadventures. The press is looking for quality nonfiction stories about riding disasters, comical mishaps, pranks, crashes, bad judgment calls, misfortune, contest meltdowns, strange injuries, loss of wit, critical conditions, bike trips gone wrong or "non-riding episodes" that surround the cycling experience: well-written stories that tell a good tale, reflect a culture, and develop the depth of the characters involved. The call is open to writers and riders of any level and any kind of bicycle, i.e., racing bikes, road bikes, mountain bikes, bmx bikes, beach cruisers, etc.

Writers will be paid upon publication if their story is selected. The press will pay on a per-word basis for previously published stories and will pay a higher per-word rate for stories that have not previously been published. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2006. Stories will not be returned.
