Great Stories Needed: Edited Prose Anthology of Contemporary Creative Nonfiction and Fiction
We are seeking outstanding prose for the anthology OUT OF MANY: MULTIPLICITY AND DIVISIONS IN AMERICA TODAY. OUT OF MANY will showcase emerging writers for an emerging generation. We are under contract with an academic publisher and hope to feature a broader spectrum of voices than those typically found in prose readers. 5000 words maximum; shorter is better. Longer may need justification. Minorities of all stripes are encouraged to submit. Experimentation welcomed. Humor, fun and play appreciated. Writers will keep their copyright.
Send us your best, your most delightful, your most insightful, your most alive, your most beautiful…. Submit your creative non-fiction or fiction to OutOfMany2015ATgmailDOTcom (OutOfMany2015@Gmail.com) as an attachment; include a brief biography.
Manuscripts should be double-spaced, paginated, with the author's name and submission title on each page. Deadline for submissions is Friday July 23, 2014.
Possible multipliers or dividers may include ideology, religion, class, race, gender, sex, sexuality, ethnicity, culture, language, generation, color, nationality, aesthetics. This is far from an exhaustive list.
Possible subjects for Out of Many: Multiplicity and Divisions in America Today should be seen as a suggestion, and are of course open to interpretation. What matters most is the quality of your story: the bigness of its heart, the freedom of its language, the power of its words, and the beauty of its vision.
