Human/Kind Press

Human/Kind Press seeks submissions of craft essays for an anthology exploring connections between identity and narrative craft. How can a marginalized identity bring a new perspective to how writing works? How can a marginalized identity challenge and/or complicate an old idea about how writing works? Essays should explore the connection between at least one marginalized identity and one craft element of fiction (such as characterization, interiority, or verisimilitude). This anthology seeks to give a platform to writers of diverse backgrounds and identities, including but not limited to queer writers, writers of color, and disabled/chronically ill writers. 1,500-4,500 word craft essays accepted. No submission fee. Contributors will be paid $20.

Submit essays as .doc/.docx or PDF attachments to Author bios of up to 100 words are welcomed as a part of the cover letter in the body of the email. Please note that writers are responsible for obtaining any necessary permissions for quoted materials in their essays.
