Nightboat Books is excited to invite submissions for an anthology edited by Naima Yael Tokunow.
Permanent Record, an experimental collection of poetry and poetics, will hold work that engages with the a/Archive. We are thinking of the a/Archive in two forms: the Archive, as the commodification of shared cultural recording (i.e. The Canon, The State, the Written Record, forms of documentation, and other “Legitimate” ways of knowing), and the archive, as a counter-practice, the portals to the future, histories, and lineages that stem from our current moment. This anthology will be published by Nightboat Books in the Fall 2024/Winter 2025.
