HobbleJog Foundation is collaborating with Green Heart Living Press to bring together 20 authors to share their stories of triumphant, long-term recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We are seeking authors from across the United States who are willing to share their personal stories with TBI, including the resources that made long-term recovery possible. We are also interested in the stories of people caring for those with TBI.
To be invited to submit a chapter, you must first apply. Your application must: 1) align with the missions of HJF and Green Heart, 2) offer an inspiring perspective/experience, 3) include resources that helped make recovery possible.
We are now accepting author applications until October 15, 2021. If you are accepted as an author, we will contact you around October 31, 2021.
You will be expected to submit a chapter word count of no more than 2,000 – 2,200. The rough draft is due on November 30, 2021, with the final draft due on December 31, 2021. Publish date is March 2022. Author podcasts are scheduled for March 2022.
The book as a whole will be copyrighted, but individual authors retain their full rights to republish their story.
We are a non-profit entity. All book proceeds will be disbursed via grants to other non-profit organizations that provide post-acute services for TBI survivors.
