CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Responses, New writings, Flesh

We invite: dialogues, songs, sketches, nests, wet maps, multimodal queries and multi-layered cakes from a broad range of writers of color. We are interested in writings, drawings, ephemera, avatars, designs. We are not interested in tracing lineages or developing an alternative canon, but rather would like to consider the space of this anthology, very simply, as a space to discuss new work. For writers, that is, in all the ways that this writing might be— to discuss what channels the urgency of avant-garde writing for a writer of color.

Please send us an excerpt of your work/and/or/play (max 5 pages) that reveals what is becoming possible in your art—as gesticulation, as glimpse, as something very quiet, or otherwise amplified, it doesn't matter—now.

In your writing, we encourage risk, vision, and depth of all dimensions; however, we are restricted to publishing text in 2D print. We'll also consider all forms of visual art and media, but images will appear in print in black and white. Should we have any questions about specific submissions, we’ll contact individual artists/writers.
