An Unbreakable Bond: The Blue and White Family!

Anthology Submission

The Centennial Commission of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is once again looking for our brightest writers!  We are excited to announce our final anthology before moving into our Centennial celebration, An Unbreakable Bond: The Blue and White Family!  This is your chance to get published while celebrating the one and only Royal Blue Family.

  • Do you have a Soror who has been there for you when no one else was?
  • Do you know a Sigma who has been closer than a brother?
  • Did you grow up in a family where Zeta was the only choice?
  • Or maybe you have an Amicae Friend who has grown to be a best friend.

We’re looking for stories from Zetas, Sigmas, Amicae, youth auxiliaries, and even the Zeta Male Network!  Whatever your story, if it celebrates a Blue and White bond, we want to hear about it!

Deadline for all submissions is September 30, 2019.
