A call for submissions: DEAF LIT EXTRAVAGANZA


Handtype Press is pleased to announce its plans to publish an anthology called Deaf Lit Extravaganza, which will showcase the best contemporary writing about the Deaf and signing community. John Lee Clark, who edited the groundbreaking collection Deaf American Poetry, is the editor.

Deadline for submissions: April 30, 2012

Fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and essays will be considered.

Translations of works in ASL or other written and sign languages are welcome. Send a query first if you have an signed piece that doesn't yet have a translation.

Deaf writers are encouraged to submit, as well as hearing writers who have strong ties to the community. International contributors are very welcome.

Both previously published and unpublished pieces are accepted.

Submissions must be single-spaced.

Chosen contributors will receive one free hard copy and one free eBook download.

Be aware that space in the book is limited; not all worthy pieces will be selected.

E-mail submissions by attachment in the Word .doc format (preferred) or .rtf/.txt. No PDFs will be accepted.
