Portuguese Heritage Publications’ ongoing project “Immigrants Stories” has received wide acceptance by the Portuguese community in California, judging by the number of stories that we have received to-date. Because we continue to receive scripts of individual and family stories, we decided to extend the deadline for new scripts through the end of November 2014.
There is one caveat, we are now looking for unique stories; stories that fall outside of the typical immigrant story; stories that don’t necessarily read like a standard individual biography; stories so outrageously real where the unexpected is just around the corner, that will keep reader’s interest and curiosity at high pitch level.
If you have such a story, even if the script is not perfect (we have editors that can polish it up) don’t be shy, send it to us at: info@PortugueseBooks.org, or call (408) 272-1222, there is a very good change that your script will be included in our publication.
If you rather contact someone at PHPC directly, please email Henrique Dinis at: firstname.lastname@example.org. or call 408-807-3235.
