Play with structure. Send us stories that start in the middle, that have no middle, that have only a middle. Send us work that is non-linear, non-traditional, or work that uses traditional structures in subversive ways. Break the boundaries. Break genre.
At Writespace, we support writers of all backgrounds, identities, and genres. For In Medias Res, we will consider submissions of all genres; this includes, but is not limited to: science fiction, mystery, fantasy, literary, romance, speculative, magical realism, western, prose poetry, new forms, experimental forms, dystopia, fairy tales, etc. We encourage submissions that cross or blur genre lines, go against conventions, and tell stories of diverse, traditionally underrepresented groups.
Word Limit: Maximum 2,000 words (fiction, flash fiction, prose poetry)
Submission Period Opens: February 28th, 2016.
Submission Period Closes: April 28th, 2016.
Anthology Publication: Early Fall, 2016.
The anthology will partner with Writefest 2016. Writers who attend Writefest, either via workshop or the weekend Submit-A-Thon, will skip the slush and receive first reading from the editors.
