"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 Two Calls: Sundress Seeking Hybrids, and Panoply Seeking 'Daylight'

Manticore: Hybrid Writing from Hybrid Identities 

Editor: Nicole Oquendo
Publisher: Sundress Publications 
Deadline: May 15, 2017

This anthology aims to feature the strange and wonderful intersection between work by writers and artists of hybrid identities and the hybrid work they produce. We are especially interested in work from writers and artists of color, trans, queer, neurodivergent, or disabled writers and artists, writers and artists with invisible illnesses, and anyone else who feels their identity is itself an intersection. In short, if you believe your identity is a hybrid form that influences your craft, we want to hear from you. 
Since this anthology will be available exclusively online for free, contributors to this anthology cannot be paid at this time. However, submissions to this anthology are free. 

Submissions are due to anthologyATsundresspublicationsDOTcom by 11:59 EST on May 15th, 2017. 

Submission Guidelines

This anthology seeks hybrid or otherwise experimental prose, poetry, and other forms from writers that identify as having a hybrid identity. Shorter work is preferred unless the hybrid nature of a piece demands a higher word or page count. Submit up to one submission batch per genre.  

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but let us know immediately if your work has been accepted elsewhere. While disclosure is not required, we’d also love to know more about your hybrid identity in your cover letter, including how you feel your hybrid identity influences your craft. 

Fiction
Send one (1) story of up to 5,000 words, or up to three (<3) flash stories, attached in a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. The email subject line should read FICTION – Your Full Name – Title of Work.

Multimodal/Hybrid
If your submission is multimodal/hybrid (possibilities include images along with text, including but not limited to comics and photo essays, work with sound components, or blends of multiple genres), send one (1) piece of up to 5,000 words, or up to three (<3) flash pieces, attached in a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file.
