3 Nations Anthology Submission Deadline Today!

Wednesday, March 15

3 Nations Anthology, a collection of writings by Native American, Atlantic Canadian, and New England writers. The anthology will be a conversation among writers of both prose and poetry.

The goal for the 3 Nations Anthology is to produce a lasting work of literary merit highlighting the many talented writers and spoken word artists in this region and beyond. The project was conceived in a much more hopeful time. The increasingly nationalistic tone of the new administration makes this call for dialogue among neighboring nations all the more critical. We must keep communication open.

I am seeking works of short prose and poetry for this anthology which conveys what living here is like where 3 Nations exist close together; what we share and what keeps us apart. Send works that describe a life or an instant. Subject matter can be very broad, from borders and bridges, the water that flows around-under-through, the solid ground we stand on, the tides that alternately obscure and reveal, kinships, animosities, heritage, geography, dawn, dawn land, northern lights, moose meat stew, poutine, ployes, lobster, pollock, lumber, boat-building, pregnant cows, art, music, literature—anything that makes up life in this region where three nations share space, history, and the future.

Please don’t feel that this is a required list of topics or ideas. As the editor of the literary journal Off the Coast over the course of eight years I came to expect surprises and new ways of interpreting ideas and also to accommodate different viewpoints.

Short Prose: Fiction or non-fiction, 5,000 words or less, flash and micro works encouraged. A single work greater than 1,000wds, 1-2 pieces less than 1,000 wds. Previously published work is OK if you hold the copyright.

Poetry: 1-3 poems, any style or format, less than 50 lines preferred. Previously published work is OK if you hold the copyright.

Ephemera: Hand written notes, recipes, and other items are welcome. Send scanned high resolution images in jpg, tif, psd, or pdf format.

Include a brief bio and a statement about your work. Query if you are unsure whether your work falls within the guidelines.

Deadline (online and postmark): March 15, 2017
