NEGLECTED HISTORIES OF ARKANSAS CONTEST
DEADLINE JANUARY 15, 2018
Help Et Alia (re)write Arkansas! Publication + Cash Prizes in two categories.
- The manuscript winner receives $125, and five copies; two runners-up will each receive $25 and two copies. It is our hope to publish the work of the winner and two runners-up as an anthology, but we may publish fewer. Judged by H.K Hummel.
- The art/photography winner receives $125, and five copies; two runners-up will each receive $25 and two copies. Each submission will be considered for incorporation into the cover design. Judged by Todd Herman.
Neglected Histories of Arkansas welcomes writings of any genre as well as visual art and photography that explore and share tough truths in and about Arkansas. We need work that will preserve and expand cultural memory in its diversity, and shine a light on the neglected and alternative histories of The Natural State. Especially if you’re an Arkansan of color, identify as a woman and/or LGBTQ, live with a serious health issue, are a whistle-blower, or live a lifestyle outside the mainstream, you probably know a different Arkansas than some histories have fabricated.
Full details and information about our judges can be found here.
As you thumb through a great fall issue of the Oxford American, including "Becoming Integrated: Trying to achieve black selfhood in Little Rock" by Frederick McKindra, you will stumble across our ad for Et Alia's Neglected Histories of Arkansas Contest on page 61. For complete information, go to etaliapress.com/contest. The deadline in a few months away, but we're already pumped to read and view your very best work that (re)writes Arkansas.
