Call for Submissions: Trans Anthology for Young Readers
Trans/nonbinary/Two-Spirit/genderqueer/gender creative/gender noncompliant folks, this is a call for you.
We are creating a beautiful, illustrated anthology for binary and nonbinary trans readers ages 12 and up and for their friends and allies, by binary and nonbinary trans people. We are telling our own stories, breathing life into our wishes and dreams, becoming the possibility models we need. We are shaping our own truths, we are creating the future, we are mourning, surviving, and celebrating. Yes, this uses our names and our pronouns as we know them to be ourselves, but we are not stopping there—there is so much more. This is for us and by us, in all our differences and variations, and the possibilities are endless.
We are creating an anthology to delight, as a love letter, as future-builders, as dreamers, as survivors, and as people with ancestry.
Deadline: March 1, 2021
We aim to center the work of Two-Spirit, genderqueer, and trans people (binary and nonbinary) who are Black, people of color, Indigenous, disabled, working class/poor, rural, or otherwise part of an equity-seeking group. We commit to working with people respectfully and tenderly, acknowledging our differences.
