  • UNSENT LETTERS SUBMISSIONS – ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS

We are compiling some of our very best Unsent Letters about abusive relationships for a very special print edition of Unsent Letters, in which a portion of all the proceeds from the sales of Unsent Letters will be donated to shelters for abused children, or other domestic violence prevention programs. This project is still in the very preliminary stages, and we will update with more information about where the donations will go and who we will partner with to make this collection happen.

If you have a letter with an ‘abuse’  angle to it, either to the abuser, the abused, or any other person where abuse is the primary theme of the letter, please submit that letter with the special subject line: Unsent Letters Submissions – Abusive Relationships. While some of these letters will be published on the blog, we are primarily focused on high quality, emotive letters for inclusion in the anthology.

  • UNSENT LETTERS SUBMISSIONS – THE ‘OTHER’ WOMAN / THE ‘OTHER’ MAN

This collection is going to be for letters about cheating – we’re focusing on the ‘other woman’ ‘other man’ in this one, so either we want a letter to the other woman/man or a letter from the other woman/man, or a letter to the partner who is not having the affair. Who writes the letter can be anyone who has a vested interest in writing it: a husband, a wife, a grown child of someone who was cheated on, a casual observer, a friend, or an interested party.

Be sure to put: UNSENT LETTERS SUBMISSION – OTHER WOMAN

at the top of the cover letter on the submission form.

  • UNSENT THANK YOU LETTERS

Who said all Unsent Letters have to be bad, sad, or angry? They don’t! Here is your chance to send a thank you letter to someone you can’t really send to. Maybe it’s the waitress who made your day a little brighter. Maybe you want to thank your husband for loving you all these years. Maybe you want to thank your wife for putting up with you! Maybe you want to thank the stranger on the street corner who was kind to you.

Of course, thank you letters do work both ways, and there can be a lot of sarcasm in a thank you as well, such as, “Thank you for breaking my heart, you scum!” We leave it up to you how you want to word your thank you letter, but we hope you’ll send it to us for consideration!

Be sure to put: UNSENT LETTERS SUBMISSION – THANK YOU

at the top of the cover letter on the submission form.

  • UNSENT LETTERS to PETS

For those of us who love our furry friends, feathered friends, four-legged friends, and all the other types of pets who show us their unconditional love and gratitude, this Unsent Letters book is for you. Write a letter to your pet!

  • UNSENT HEALTH LETTERS

With this theme, we want to see Unsent Letters to doctors, health care professionals, nurses, caregivers, to our own bodies, to someone we had to take care of, to a person who was sick, is sick, or who has recovered from being sick. Letters written to diseases, illnesses, or medical facilities will work too. “Dear Lupus, I won’t let you have a hold on me…” type of style.

Be sure to put: UNSENT LETTERS SUBMISSIONS – HEALTH

at the top of the cover letter on the submission form.

 

Of course, you don’t have to submit to one of these categories specifically. You’re always welcome to submit a generic letter or a letter to someone or on a subject not included here. The more unique, compelling and poignant your letter is, the better. If your letter can help someone, teach a lesson, provide answers… something with a bigger appeal, a universal application, we will pay top dollar.

Looking forward to reading your submissions.

Hope you’ll submit! Please spread the word!
