2. Call for Prose Submissions to Anthology: Out of Many: Multiplicity and Divisions in America Today

We are seeking outstanding prose for the anthology Out of Many: Multiplicity and Divisions in America Today. Out of Many, which will showcase emerging writers for an emerging generation, is already under contract with an academic publisher and will feature a broader spectrum of voices than those typically found in prose readers for college undergraduates. 5000 words maximum; shorter is better. Minorities of all stripes are encouraged to submit. Experimentation welcomed. Humor appreciated. Writers will keep their copyright.

Send us your best, your most delightful, your most insightful, your most alive, your most beautiful…. Submit your creative non-fiction or fiction to:

OutOfMany2015ATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)

as an attachment and include a brief biography. Manuscripts should be double-spaced, paginated, with the author’s name and submission title on each page. Deadline for submissions is Friday July 23, 2014.

Possible multipliers or dividers may include ideology, religion, class, race, gender, sex, sexuality, ethnicity, culture, language, generation, color, nationality, aesthetics. This is far from an exhaustive list.
Possible subjects for Out of Many: Multiplicity and Divisions in America Today should be seen as a suggestion, and are of course open to interpretation. What matters most is the quality of your story: the bigness of its heart, the freedom of its language, the power of its words, and the beauty of its vision.

3. The Empathy Exams

Leslie Jamison is a marvel. The essays that make up this collection are wise, uncomfortable, beautiful, humane, and utterly absorbing. They demand an investigation of the reader's own heart. I can't think of another book I've recommended to so many people so fiercely. I'm already happy to declare it the best nonfiction book of 2014. [...]

13. Call for Submissions: Out of Sequence: The Sonnets Remixed

Out of Sequence: The Sonnets Remixed

Edited by D. Gilson
Afterword by Ayanna Thompson

From that very first line, Shakespeare tells us “we desire increase.” First published in 1609, the 154 sonnet sequence has not only proven to be a seemingly immortal book of poetry, but also a series that changed the art form itself endlessly. Even if unbeknownst, we have never stopped revisiting the Sonnets, revising and remixing them at every turn.

Out of Sequence, a media event from Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies, seeks responses to Shakespeare’s sonnets from poets, writers, and visual artists. Resulting in a 154-part publication with editorial introduction accessible both online (here) and in print (under advance contract with Parlor Press), we expect the project to be available by the end of summer 2014. We are particularly interested in responses that remix the sonnets in a contemporary context while also speaking back to the historical moment of Shakespeare’s original.

We ask that you choose a sonnet and respond to it through a poem, brief essay of no more than 500 words, or visual piece amendable to .jpg formatting. Poems do not have to be in sonnet form.

Submit your response along with a brief third-person bio to:

outofsequencesonnetsATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)

As we move closer to the deadline, you may want to check with us to see which sonnets have been claimed.

Will you help us create in every bad a perfect best, as fast as to our beams assemble?

Submissions are due March 1, 2014.

Sonnets Still in Need of Remixing (as of 1/13): 4, 17, 24, 25, 32, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39, 41, 42, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 51, 53, 59, 62, 63, 67, 68, 69, 70, 72, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 81, 82, 84, 85, 86, 87, 89, 92, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 102, 105, 107, 108, 109, 112, 113, 114, 115, 117, 118, 120, 121, 123, 124, 125, 127, 128, 131, 132, 133, 139, 140, 141, 144, 148, 149, 150, 151, 152, 154

16. Titan Unveil ‘Monster Massacre’ Anthology

The Brit Zone continues, sort of, with a new announcement from Titan Comics. This week Titan unveiled a new co-publishing deal between themselves and Atomeka, which will put out ‘Monster Massacre’. This anthology will feature stories all about – you guessed it – monsters. On top of stories from creators like D’Israeli, Ian Edginton, Ron Marz, and Dave Wilkins, the book will also include a Joe Simon/Jack Kirby story, ‘The Greatest Horror of Them All’, taken from Black Cat Mystery.

The cover is far too rude for me to post on The Beat, so instead here’s a page or two of interiors.

mm2 Titan Unveil Monster Massacre Anthology

Put together by writer/artist Dave Elliott, the anthology’s full list of credits are:

Joe Simon/Jack Kirby, Andy Kuhn, Dave Dorman, Mark A Nelson, Ron Marz /Tom Raney, Dave Elliott/Alex Horley,Vito Delsante/Javier Aranda, Dave Wilkins/Dave Elliott, Jerry Paris/Arthur Suydam/Dave Elliott,  Ian Edginton/D’Israeli, Alex Horley and Steve White.

A little bereft of female creators perhaps, but that’s a fine line-up. There are ten stories collected in total, along with two art galleries.

mm1 Titan Unveil Monster Massacre Anthology

The anthology will be released in September, and be day-and-date digital.

18. Call for Submissions: Twelve Winters Press

Twelve Winters Press is accepting submissions for an anthology of poetry, prose poetry, and flash fiction (1,000 words maximum) inspired by the theme of "extinguished and extinct." Certainly contributors will want to think in terms of animals that have become or are fast becoming extinct, but also plants, insects, even bacteria and viruses.

Feel free to think of extinguished and extinct in more abstract terms as well: disappeared ecosystems; eras; political, social, cultural, artistic movements; perhaps even extinguished emotions on the personal level. As long as you're thinking extinguished and/or extinct, we want to take a look at it.

Contributors may submit up to five total pieces (poem, prose poem, and/or flash fiction). Submit online.

Contributors will be paid in two copies of the anthology, which is planned for a 2014 release. After confirmation of acceptance, contributors will receive page galleys for approval. We look forward to reading your work.

23. Call for Poetry: It Was Written: Poetry Inspired by Hip-Hop

It Was Written: Poetry Inspired by Hip-Hop

This anthology will be one of the first that focuses on poets who use hip-hop culture in their works. We believe this collection will fill a major void in the discussion of music and poetry. We want poems that engage or reference hip-hop in a variety of ways, from the music and artists to the clothing, dancing, and culture as a whole. We also hope to see a variety of poetic forms. We hope this anthology will be a valuable teaching tool and a resource for writers, readers, and fans of either genre (poetry or hip-hop).

We ask that poets submit their work here.

Poets are asked to submit 2-4 poems in a single document. Submissions will close on December 31, 2013. If a poet’s work is selected for inclusion in the anthology, we will then ask for an accompanying process note and writing prompt to go along with the work.

Any questions about the submission process should be directed to:
