OTHER TONGUES: Mixed-Race Women Speak Out — Submissions Due May 15, 2010


OTHER TONGUES: Mixed-Race Women Speak Out

Co-editors Adebe D.A. and Andrea Thompson are seeking submissions for an anthology of writing by and about mixed-race women, intended for publication in Fall 2010 by Inanna Publications.

The purpose of this anthology is to explore the question of how mixed-race women in North America identify in the 21st Century. The anthology will also serve as a place to learn about the social experiences, attitudes, and feelings of others, and what racial identity has come to mean today. We are inviting previously unpublished submissions that engage, document, and/or explore the experiences of being mixed-race, by placing interraciality as the center, rather than periphery, of analysis.

Please send one (1) submission of up to 2500 words of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, or spoken word as a SINGLE attachment to othertonguesanthology@gmail.com

Black and white images and artwork should be 300 dpi and sent as attachments in jpg. of tiff. format. Artwork and photography limited to three (3) per applicant.

Please include your contact information, including your name, address, phone number, e-mail, title(s) of work submitted, type of submission, and a short artist bio (50 words max) in the body of the email, with your name and the type of submission in the subject line (e.g. “Jazmine – Poetry Submission”). All submissions are due May 15, 2010. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

If you prefer that your contribution remain anonymous, please include this preference at the top of your submission. All personal information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Editors, Adebe DeRango-Adem and Andrea Thompson, at othertonguesanthology@gmail.com

  3. Excellent..! Sounds like this will be a great book to have out there. I reposted this call on my blog if that’s okay. I hope you don’t mind.

  6. Is it too late for a late submission? I have a few students who may wish to submit but we didn’t find out about this until today 😦

    • We’ve had many messages from women who missed the deadline for one reason or another. If this is you, please feel free to send your work to us by Monday June 1st. While we will be focusing on the submissions received before the deadline on May 15th, and can not guarantee that any later submissions will be considered, we do want to leave the door open … and if we find we’re short on material, we may look at these later submissions when making our final selections. But June 1st is firm ladies … last, last call … for real !

      Please stay updated about the book at http://www.adebe.wordpress.com and http://www.andreathompson.ca, or visit us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=276479812662. If you have any questions or input, please do not hesitate to contact us at othertonguesanthology@gmail.com .
