Plans for the Apocalypse: Call for submissions for new anthology

Call for Submissions: PLANS FOR THE APOCALYPSE

From a Portland Willamette Writers member: Do you have plans for the the end of civilization? Did you ever? Is it possible to prepare for the ultimate catastrophe? Leave it to humans to try…

  • Being part of a religious group preparing for Armageddon
  • How to can up and store food
  • Living off the grid & hoarding water for environmental disaster
  • Urban post-civilization survival
  • Changing relationships for post-apocalyptic times
  • How to meditate your way to salvation
  • Parenting for an unpredictable future
  • Spending the family savings on an underground bunker
  • Armed to the teeth or raising chickens for the final catastrophe…
  • Or?

We’re seeking short literary memoir, fiction, childhood memories, DIY instructions, how-to, to-do lists, preparations, photographs, diagrams, comics, illustrations, letters, philosophical truths, all on planning and preparing for the end of civilization as we know it.

Send us your stories. Write with any questions.

  • Prefer 2,500 words or less. Will consider up to 5,000
  • Deadline: August 7, 2011
  • Editors Jenny Forrester and Ariel Gore

    Jenny / Ariel,

    Intriguing concept! Would you tell us about your vision for the anthology?

    Are you “cold submitting” to agents and publishers; publishing independently; looking at paper publication; planning for distributing any profits to authors?

    Thank you.

    Lila
