" Although roughly half the people in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been women, their lives of faith and dedication have not always received the attention they deserve. This series aims to enhance awareness of these women through inspirational vignettes that point to works dealing more fully with their lives.
Please visit our Series Overview page for the basic plan of this multi-year, multi-volume project. We are accepting submissions for all volumes, with a focus on Volume 2 of the series. With a planned publication in 2011, Volume 1 will detail the lives of Latter-day Saint women born before or in 1820. If you would like to contribute to this project, please review our Anatomy of a Chapter and Submitting a Proposal pages.
The proposal submission period for Volume 1 has ended, but we are accepting proposals for subsequent volumes on a rolling basis.
Proposals for Volume 2 are due April 15, 2011."
Volume 2 is focusing on women born between 1821 and 1845. This sounds like an incredible project. It is so important for women's stories to be written down. The reason we don't have more of them in the scriptures is because women couldn't and didn't write them. If something like this interests you I'd really encourage you to discover a women in your heritage that you could write about. You'd be preserving her story for future generations.
