Three Anthologies Seeking Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | March 1, 2016

Three upcomng anthologies, one about language, one about music, and the third about motherhood (however you define it) and traveling, are featured this month.

This Bridge Called Language Anthology

This Bridge Called Language is an upcoming anthology of real-life stories, each inspired by an “untranslatable” word from around the world. They are seeking personal stories/memoir inspired by untranslatable words that capture the essence and experience of the word more than any direct translation could. They are not interested in poetry or fiction.

Authors will receive a copy of the book and a bio in the collection. They will also receive an unspecified token payment.

The Deadline is March 31, 2016. Visit their website to submit or learn more.

Stories of Music: Volume 2

This is a forthcoming anthology about the ways in which music has changed people’s lives. Volume 1 was previously featured on this website last year. They are currently accepting submissions in a variety of categories, including nonfiction, poetry, photography, audio recordings, and video works. Stories should be focused on music and the impact it has on people’s lives, from its role in healing, community, cultural or family traditions to musicianship, travel experiences, or any other experience with music.

Each author selected for publication will receive $200 and a contributor copy of the book. The deadline is April 1, 2016.

Ten percent of the book’s proceeds will be donated to music-centered nonprofit organizations. Learn more about Stories of Music and submit your story here: https://www.storiesofmusic.com/submit-a-story.
