Last week we revealed on Instagram that we were going to be producing a creative nonfiction anthology that will be free to submit to, and divvy up the profit between the authors selected to be in the anthology.
Let's talk about what we're looking for and when we want it.
WHAT DO WE WANT
This is the easy part (or maybe the hardest!!!). The theme is that there is no theme. We want essays about writing, writing life, craft, and experiences in the writing world. The only requirement is that they are well-written, researched, and honest. These essays must be original and not previously published (please do not attempt to recycle something and send it to us).
We would like essays that are less than 10 pages in length. Please submit as a Word document or PDF.
WHEN DO WE WANT IT
The submissions period opens July 31, 2023 and closes on November 1, 2023. We are asking that writers submit their works to us through Stacks Submission Manager. It's free to use. This is a new software that we are potentially transitioning over to for our year-round book submissions. If you are unable to submit your work through the new submissions manager, please use this FORM instead.
You will hear back from us in January 2024. The goal is to have it ready to publish in July 2024.
