Share Your Encounters--Deadline September 15

The Editor of US-China Review is putting together a fun winter issue and asks for your input.
See below:

Dear fellow USCPFA Members:
The theme for the Winter issue of US-China Review will be: Close Encounters of All Kinds. I am seeking brief stories from Americans about their encounters in China, and from Chinese on their encounters in the U.S. I also accept articles from non-members.
The stories can be humorous, poignant, informative, etc. They can show the joys or frustrations of learning about the other country. I would like to receive stories of various lengths. In some cases, just a few paragraphs would be enough. Ideally, the stories will also involve various time periods (some from when China first opened up, some from recent years), various parts of
China and various situations (teaching English, taking a bike trip, making funny mistakes while trying to speak Chinese, etc.).
If possible, please email photos to go with the stories. If you are pressed for time, I can fine-tune any submissions, but please send them as soon as possible – and no later than Sept. 15.
