Call for Anthology Submissions: Best American Experimental Writing (BAX)

Omnidawn is delighted to announce BAX: Best American Experimental Writing Anthology is now open for submissions. Submit your work here.

Guest Editor: Cole Swensen
Series Editors: Seth Abramson & Jesse Damiani
Open Submission Period: March 6 to November 15, 2013

The Best American Experimental Writing anthology ("BAX" for short) will be an annual anthology of approximately 200 pages. The first issue will be published in the spring of 2014 by Omnidawn Publishing. The Guest Editor, Cole Swensen, will choose 60% of the content; the Series Editors, Seth Abramson and Jesse Damiani, will select 20% of the content, and at least 20% of the content will be chosen by the Guest Editor and Series Editors from submissions received via the submission process described below.

The cost for a submission is $9 for three pieces of writing or nine pages (whichever is fewer). If you have ever been a colleague, student, and/or close friend of the Guest Editor (for 2013: Cole Swensen) or the Series Editors (for 2013 and beyond: Seth Abramson and Jesse Damiani) there is a question on the Omnidawn Submittable web page where you can indicate any Editors with whom you have had such a relationship so your submission can be read by someone other than the Editor(s) you know. Selections for  the anthology will be announced publicly in spring 2014, though authorswhose work is selected will be notified electronically in winter 2013-14.
