We want a selfie from you that isn’t ordinary. Can you take a  selfie that tells a story? What if you dress in costume? Can you take a selfie that conveys emotion — sadness, happiness, curiosity? Can you take a selfie that makes us feel what you are thinking? Can you get across to us who you are — or who you want to be  — with just one photograph taken of you by you? Send us a selfie unlike any selfie you have seen before. Be creative. Think original. Think outside the box. You may submit up to 3 images. 
Five winners will receive a $10 give certificate at


About the Author

In 1973, I was twenty years old, teaching children's art classes at my college, the University of California, Santa Cruz, and came up with the idea that the best way to encourage children to write was to introduce them to the best writing by their peers. Stone Soup grew out of that idea. Along with co-editor Gerry Mandel, I have continued to edit and publish Stone Soup for all these years. I am also a culinary historian. I write about traditional foodways. My book, "The Magic of Fire," is about hearth cooking. My book, "Bread, a global history," speaks for itself. I am currently writing a bread history for a University Press. I publish articles on gardening and traditional foodways at Mother Earth News. I also publish on wild mushrooms and other food-related subjects.
