Earlier today I introduced all of you to CCLaP's 2011 summer intern, Traci Kim; and I mentioned there how the main thing she'll be doing for the center this summer is a brand-new anthology project, which she will be manning the reins of from conceptualization all the way to final output. In that spirit, then, here is the call for submissions that Traci has put together for it; as she mentions, you can send yours along to CCLaP's main email address, cclapcenter [at] gmail.com, where I will be forwarding them to Traci herself. Both she and I look forward to seeing what you might put together.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Setting is such an integral element in narrative. Sometimes environment can seem like its own character, and sometimes a location can serve as an impetus more influential than one's own will. Setting can shape the ideology of a person, town, city, or country. What is it about our surroundings (familiar or exotic) that make us realize things we wouldn't anywhere else? What is so persuasive about being in a strange city, or even a small community? For my anthology, I would like short stories that explore milieu's many facets and functions. 10,000 word maximum. Please email all submissions to cclapcenter [at] gmail.com by July 11, 2011.
