I am editing an anthology of short fiction by Latinos/as in which the City of Los Angeles plays an integral role. I am interested in provocative stories on virtually any subject by both established and new writers. Stories may range from social realism to cuentos de fantasma and anything in between. Los Angeles may be a major "character" or merely lurking in the background. I'd like to see characters who represent diverse backgrounds in terms of ethnicity, profession, age, sexual orientation, etc.
Preferred length: 500 to 5,000 words. Stories may be previously published (please indicate where). Chapters from novels will be considered if they can stand alone. Award-winning publisher is interested but wants to see final manuscript.
Please e-mail your story, using standard submission formatting, as a Word document to
firstname.lastname@example.org. In the e-mail, include you contact information, list of previous publications (if any), and the ethnicity(ies) with which you identify. Feel free to visit my Web page at:
DEADLINE: September 1, 2005.
