DC, Maryland and Virginia writers (and all those who have connections to the area!), 4 days to submit your poetry and short fiction to THIS IS WHAT AMERICA LOOKS LIKE--June 1st deadline. Submit at www.wwph.submittable.com,
This is the Washington Writers' Publishing House's first anthology in 25 years-- and it is scheduled for publication in spring, 2021. We are looking for poetry and short fiction (2,000 words max) for this anthology that we hope will help answer the question: What is America? Our home? Our nation? (what should it look like?). We had the idea of this anthology before the pandemic, but that's part of our lives now. Still, there's so much more to write about-- we are living in strange, complicated times and we need the words of our poets and writers to rise.
We are looking for UNPUBLISHED WORK. We are looking for NEW and ESTABLISHED voices -- a diverse range of voices. Remember: submit by June 1st at www.wwph.submittable.com
More about WWPH... we are a 47-year old nonprofit, cooperative, all-volunteer press. For this anthology, we are with asking for a $5.00 submittable fee. For those selected, payment is a contributor copy and participation in virtual/in person readings-celebrations around the DMV. Plus, we will have editor prizes in both poetry and fiction.
