CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR

Online Submission Deadline: March 1st, 2014
Type: Essays, Poetry, Short Stories, Art & Photographs
Length: 2500 words (Maximum)
Submission And Guideline Details
“Vietnamese Adoptees 2.0: In Our Own Words” is a forthcoming anthology of Vietnamese Adoptees. We are looking for adoptees of any age who wish to share a piece of their story and journey, their reflections, mindsets, critical analysis, blurred poetry, photographs and sketches – anything you want to share as a Vietnamese American Adoptee. Previously published work will be considered, but we prefer new entries.
In compiling this anthology, the hope is to show the many diverse stories and faces from a community in a dispersed population: a lens on who we are as individuals, and from a larger, more communal focal point.
The book will be edited by Vietnamese Adoptees, Sumeia Williams and Adam Chau. Sumeia Williams has blogged at the New York Times for the section “Relative Voices” as well as for the blogs “Misplaced Baggage” and “Ethnically Incorrect Daughter”. Adam Chau is co-editor of “Parenting as Adoptees” and has posted his thoughts up on the MPR, Gazillion Voices, Slant Eye For The Round Eye, and MyxTV blogs.
Submission should be no longer than 2500 words, double spaced, and in Microsoft Word format in an attachment. Photographs and artwork should be at least 300 DPI in jpg format. All submissions are due by March 1st 2014 and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (as well as with any questions).
Submissions from all countries are welcome.
