Taking Submissions: letters i’ll never send
December 31, 2021
Deadline: December 31st, 2021
Payment: $50 and a contributor’s copy
Theme: A compilation of first-person accounts including letters, prosaic poems, diary entries, postcard letters, short personal essays, and other genre-bending experimental pieces
I am seeking writers for an experimental anthology titled “letters i’ll never send”.
This anthology will be a compilation of first-person accounts including letters, prosaic poems, diary entries, postcard letters, short personal essays, and other genre-bending experimental pieces.
“letters i’ll never send” is meant to serve as a sentimental linkage between the writer and the reader. It should lure the reader in emotionally, so that they can resonate in some meaningful way. Simultaneously, all pieces inside the book should connect with the others in vulnerable, open, or spiritual ways – or all of those ways. Essentially, just write as if you’re writing to whoever, and run with whatever comes up – whether it’s an angry letter, a love letter, a breakup letter, a friendship letter, a self-reflection letter, a letter to yourself, a postcard letter to a friend/significant other, etc. The possibilities are endless, and as long as you capture the vulnerability and heartwarming (or heart-wrenching) pull that I’d love to evoke in the book, then this anthology will be an impassioned masterpiece!
If you have a piece that you think is fit for this project, I’d love to hear from you. Please make sure to only send your own, unpublished work. I will not accept previously published work for this project. Please make sure that longer pieces are no more than 1,000 words. If your piece is chosen, I will need non-exclusive rights to what you submit and I will pay you $50 on acceptance. All rights revert back to the author upon publication. I will also send you a copy of the print version of the book when it is published. When you respond, please only send your piece via email (either in the body of email or via attachments). Multiple submissions are allowed.
