“We lived in Scar-bro, a suburb that had mushroomed up and yellowed, browned, and blackened into life.” - David Chariandy, Brother (13)
Building on the recent success of writers such as David Chariandy, Catherine Hernandez and Carrianne Leung, FEEL WAYS seeks writing from Scarborough writers on Scarborough. Scarborough is not a monolith - evident from the way Carrianne Leung’s focuses on a pre-amalgamation era to Catherine Hernandez’s very recent, present-day version of the suburb.
From the rush of the Rouge River to teenagers swamping the mall to the signature screech of the RT, there have always been stories here in Scarborough. We’re looking for yours.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
We invite you and all to submit original, unpublished work for an forthcoming print anthology. FEEL WAYS Volume 1 will focus on unique snippets of Scarborough as a landmark and landscape celebrating life and it's people. We are looking for stories from Scarborough. Stories may be speculative. Stories may be anticlimactic. Stories may be loud, and unapologetic, and proud. Stories may be poems and stories may be small snapshots.
We are considering flash fiction (1500), creative nonfiction (1500) and poetry (100 lines).
Have questions? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Submissions will close on June 30, 2019.
