DISTRICT LINES

Politics & Prose is excited to announce the launch of its P&P imprint with an inaugural anthology of original, local work intended to capture a sense of people and place in DC and the surrounding metropolitan area.

We are now accepting submissions for the following:  poems, essays, short stories, coherent musings and ramblings, scribbles, comics, or graphics. The work should describe a particular DC metropolitan neighborhood, the perimeters of which will be loosely defined. Work must be original and previously unpublished. Prose should be under 3,000 words in a word document, double-spaced, using Times New Roman, 12 point font. Graphics must be in a PDF file that can be reproduced in black and white.

 All entries must be accompanied by a $10 entry fee, which will allow us to give each author of a submission that is selected for publication a free copy of the anthology. We hope to hold an event at the store once the anthology is published, and will ask selected contributors to join us for an open reading.

The deadline for submissions is September 22, 2012.

Please submit entries in a word document, double-spaced, using Times New Roman, 12 point font.
