Mongrel Empire Press, an Eclectic Publishing House specializing in regional and uncommon literary works, is seeking submissions for an upcoming anthology featuring Oklahoma writers of color.
Quraysh Ali Lansana and Dr. Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, in collaboration with Mongrel Empire Press, seek to publish the writing of People of Color born and/or raised in Oklahoma or who have lived in the Oklahoma for five or more years. Though the editors prefer writing that speaks to some aspect of life in the Sooner State (politics, history, culture, the land, etc), all topics and genres are welcome. This anthology will be the first to document exclusively the lives of minorities in Oklahoma. We are looking for essays, interviews, short fiction, poetry and personal reflections for publication that explore life in Oklahoma as well as the state's rich history.
More information and submission guidelines are available here.
Deadline: August 1, 2013
