It’s been hard to know how to do anything over the last few weeks and months. These are tough, tough times. I wanted to do something positive, something that shows that now, in these times, art is vital.
A Furious Hope is the working title for an anthology for hard times. We are currently inviting submissions of poetry and flash fiction on the theme of hope.
We are looking for pieces that explore hope in the broadest possible sense; glimmers of hope, searching for hope, finding hope in unexpected places or circumstances, meditations of what hope is and looks like.
Please send up to 3 pieces of Flash Fiction or Poetry (or a mixture of the two). The word limit for Flash is 500 words, and Poetry up to 60 lines.
Previously published pieces will be considered, so long as the writer retains copyright and the other party are happy. We will, of course, cite where it was first published.
Welcoming international submissions, though must be written in English. Am also keen to see submissions from BAME and LGBTQ writers.
The deadline for submissions is 3rd September.
All contributors will get a PDF copy of the project and a discount on copies of the anthology.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
