headshotvignette (vɪˈnjɛt) – n.
1. a small illustration placed at the beginning or end of a book or chapter
2. a short graceful literary essay or sketch

Reader, blogger, and creative nonfiction essayist Andrea Badgley is seeking submissions for American Vignette: Show Us Your State, a creative nonfiction component of her Andrea Reads America project.

What she wants:

In fewer than 800 words – in a “short graceful literary essay or sketch” – describe a scene that captures a sense of place in your home state (home may be your childhood home, your current home, or anywhere in between). The sense of place may be evoked through landscape, food, culture, ecology, colloquialisms, or any distinctive element of the state you call home. Your vignette must be set in a state you have lived for a minimum of three months. Diversity is a core value of the Andrea Reads America project, so authors of all genders, colors, and heritages are encouraged to submit. Previously published work is welcome.

Full submission guidelines can be found here.
