Submissions are sought for a new anthology on trans people and the Internet. The working title at this time is Trans_ : An Anthology of Trans People and the Internet.
Editors: Mitch Kellaway, Harlan Kellaway, TBD
Proposal Deadline: August 1st, 2014
Final Submission Deadline: January 1st, 2015
Trans_ is the first anthology to collect the voices and experiences of trans people speaking to how the Internet has impacted our lives and how we have impacted the Internet. We wish to capture a range of pieces from those who use, cannot use, work with, develop for, socialize on, and build community with the Internet.
Submissions are open to all trans writers, whether this is your first time submitting or you’re a published author--we will work with a range of experience. Submissions should be both by trans, transfeminine, transmasculine, non-binary, genderqueer-identified, and/or folks who otherwise identify with a spectrum of gender nonconformity and address experiences of these communities (i.e. We will not consider writing by non-trans people nor writing about the Internet by a trans person that doesn’t directly address trans or nonbinary folks).
Please send us a 150 word proposal about your intended contribution (or the full piece if previously published) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1st, 2014. Submissions should be copied and pasted into the body of the email (i.e. not in an attached document).
We will consider proposals for non-fiction essays, both creative/personal and analytical, as well as relevant blog posts. Reprints are acceptable if you have the permissions for them. Submitters will be contacted within 4 weeks following the submission deadline. If your proposal is accepted, your final submission should be 500-2500 words. We will require a 50-75 word bio; pseudonyms welcome. Final essays for accepted proposals will be due January 1, 2015.
