We are adding to the call for submissions:
If you are a person of colour who creates visual art, we are now taking art submissions for the collection. Unfortunately, the book interiors will be black and white only, so art submissions must be greyscale.
We are also looking for 2-3 essays to include. Essays should be personal, rather than academic or journalistic, and we favour a lyrical writing style.
Submission guidelines for essays: attach essay as a .doc file or paste the work into the body of an email, with the subject “Ferguson Submission”. Please include your name as you would like it to appear on the final version, and if this is a previously published piece, let us know.
Submission guidelines for art: attach art as a .png or high quality .jpg file. In the body of the email, provide 1) your name as you would like it to be published, 2) the title of the piece, and 3) any additional information you would like included, such as inspiration or the emotion that spurred creation of the piece.
Please spread the word, and submit your work as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org—we are looking to move on this as fast as we can. Ideally, we’ll have enough submissions to put together our first volume by Friday, December 5, 2014.
In love and solidarity,
Mourning Glory Publishing
