The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

LeVar Burton Reads: Writing Contest
LeVar Burton Reads




Description
Limited Demographic: legal residents of the United States, DC, and Puerto Rico

We are interested in stories that examine the magical joys and tragic pitfalls of blended civilizations and cultural exchanges in all their forms. As our worlds change, what precious things do we carry with us and allow to be altered or demand they remain untouched? What is taken from us and what will we do to get it back? What do we allow ourselves to remember of our histories, our roots, and what do we allow ourselves to forget? What do we leave behind and what do we choose to carry into the future?


Some things to consider as you think about the guidelines. How is it that blended civilizations and cultural exchanges might impact the following categories:


gods

faiths, religious traditions

food traditions

language

gender recognition

concepts of community

concepts of identity

race prejudice (human vs. other species)


We welcome works of the Indigenous fantastic, the other-worldly, and alternative histories. Works must include speculative or fantastical elements.
