Call for Submissions to Anthology: On Writing in a Dark Time

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: “On Writing in a Dark Time”
Are these dark times? Are our politics and culture in some way uniquely or especially perverse, dangerous, anti-democratic? Or is this just the usual rub and hubbub of history?
How should we -- as citizens, as humans, as writers – respond to such times? What language, what beauty, what rage can help? What is the quality of light?
Wild Writers Seminars (Portland, Oregon) invites your submission of a nonfiction personal essay or poem.
Essays: 1200 word limit.
Poems: 50 line limit (counting the blanks between stanzas as "lines" also, but not counting title), up to three poems.
Submissions that exceed these limits will not be considered.
Essays and poems chosen by the editors will be included in a book-length collection to be published by Kelson Books later this year. We will contact you by the end of April if yours is chosen. Payment will be in the form of five copies of the published book.  
Deadline: midnight Saturday Feb. 25, 2017.
Submit to:
KelsonBooksWritingInADarkTimeATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
Electronic submissions only. Please send by copying your essay or poem INTO THE BODY OF THE EMAIL, and ALSO as a BLIND ATTACHMENT in .doc or .docx format. “Blind” means that your name should not appear on the attached document at all, please. Use the title of your piece (or an abbreviated title) as your filename.
