In Common seeks nonfiction stories about shoes ~ deadline July 1, 2011

In Common (Canada) celebrates the human experience by exploring elements and objects shared across cultures. Available as an iPad app, each issue features stories, photographs, games, and resources that relate to a single theme/object/idea. Now seeking positive, engaging nonfiction stories (500 - 2000 words) for "In Common: Shoes".

Deadline: 12 noon on July 1, 2011.

In Common welcomes original essays and personal narratives. We look for positive, engaging nonfiction stories that invite the audience to explore new cultures, countries and places. We prefer well-researched, unsentimental and non-judgmental pieces, and we ask that all essays directly relate to the theme of an issue.

In Common invites photographers to send us between 3 and 10 photographs relating to the current theme. We like friendly, thought-provoking, and amusing pictures that show how the theme is used or interpreted in a region or culture.

Please attach your document (.doc or .rtf)  or photos (.jpg) to an email and write “Submission: (Theme) Article” in the subject line. In the body of your email, please include your name, address, and a 50-word biography. Send your email to

As compensation, authors and photographers whose work has been accepted for In Common will receive a copy of the iPad app in which their work appears. Or, if they prefer, we will contribute a $5 donation towards a Kiva loan.
