ADANNA Seeks women's stories during the Pandemic of Coronavirus outbreak
DEADLINE: May 15, 2020
Adanna Literary Journal is a women focused print publication. We are seeking essay, poetry, and creative non-fiction that speaks towards the experience of mothering in a time of crisis—caring for children, especially those with children in college returning from affected areas, those with younger children exposed to media and the anxiety of school shut-downs, as well as women who are caring for elderly relatives or those in the medical profession. To submit, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line should read “Special Issue” to distinguish this from our annual issue. Art & Photography will also be accepted in submission.
until June 2020
COPING WITH CRISIS DEDICATED EXCLUSIVELY TO THE CONCEPT OF CRISIS IN ALL ITS FORMS
We are all caught in the jaws of a crisis, but no one has quarantined our creativity.
Coping With Crisis is the theme of this new writing contest, where the definition of “senior” has been expanded to include anyone age 50 and older. Submissions are being accepted through July 31
Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression. While the catalog's niche may seem primarily poetic, other modes of expression are more than welcome. The press is always on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, as well as further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy as a home for their work.
Submissions are always open and always free.
Please send your materials to email@example.com
