Call for Submissions—“Boricua en la luna: An Anthology of Puerto Rican Voices”


Here is a call for submissions posted on the Latina/o Studies Association Facebook page for a collection entitled Boricua en la luna: An Anthology of Puerto Rican Voices. The editors of this anthology are Elena Aponte and Abigail Cloud. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2018.

Call for Submissions: We want your voices! Your stories, your poems, your thoughts, your experiences, that thing that you want to tell the world and haven’t yet.

Work may be on any subject, but should reference or relate to Puerto Rican identity. Work may be in Spanish or English, or both; we are open to work in translation, but require translated artist or estate permission. (We will not consider work that is sexist, racist, or in other ways bigoted.) All proceeds from this anthology will help fund Hurricane Maria recovery relief via the Hispanic Federation.

Submit .pdf or .doc/.docx attachment of 1-6 poems, 1-3 flash fiction or nonfiction, or short story or essay up to 3000 words to by September 30th. Please include a brief biographical note of up to 50 words. Please place title(s) of work in a list within the email, and include name and contact information on the first page of your submission.

Acceptance decisions will be made by December 31st, with release of anthology in mid-2019.

Previously published works considered. We acquire one-time print and electronic rights. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but if a work is accepted elsewhere, please alert us at the above email.
All contributors will receive a copy of the anthology, which will be distributed in both print and electronic forms.

  1. I’d like to know a little more about the seeking submissions. Are they affiliated with an organization or university? What are some of the specifics of their project?
