As an addendum to their previous call for submissions [see our previous post Call for Submissions: Boricua en la luna], co-editors Elena Aponte and Abigail Cloud are now considering visual art and comic (comic essays, comic strips, or single panel cartoons) submissions, in addition to fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Work may be on any subject, but should reference or relate to Puerto Rican identity. The deadline for submissions is September 30.
Work may be in Spanish or English, or both. 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 LunaBoricuas@gmail.com by September 30. 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.
Visual artwork should be submitted in either .pdf or .tiff format.
Acceptance decisions will be made by December 31st, with release of anthology in mid-2019.
