Creative writers are invited to submit stories to This Side of the Divide, a forthcoming anthology of short fiction exploring bold, original perspectives of the western United States. The anthology is being co-published by Baobab Press and the University of Nevada.
The editors are seeking meaningful stories that address the West’s freshness, grandeur, sense of territoriality and transitoriness, stretching from the unmarred wilderness to inner-city communities.
The purpose of the anthology is to immortalize the region’s special spirit in all of its social and geographical diversity.
Word length: 3K-5K words per story.
Payment: $100 per story.
Deadline: October 31, 2017. Read submission guidelines at Baobab Press’ website.
