Announcement: Submissions for Salvation in Stereo are now open!

***ANNOUNCEMENT***

Music themed Anthology Salvation in Stereo is open for submission

We’ve released three well received open submission anthologies so far, and we want to kick off 2023 with our most ambitious offering yet! Salvation in Stereo is intended to be an anthology centered around the theme of music, and more specifically about the music that unequivocally changed our lives.

The central ask is this:

Tell us about the music that saved your life. Give us all the gory details of the band or album or songs that held you together when it felt like nothing else in the world could. Tell us about the musician that gave you a reason to make your life stand for something. Tell us about the music that burrowed so deep within you that it disassembled your worldview and helped you begin to build a new one.

It doesn’t matter the musical genre or decade, we believe that music stretches across borders and imagined boundaries with a universal appeal that is expressed in a multitude of facets, and they’re all valid. We believe that music has power and is a force for change, and we want to celebrate the impact it has in our lives.

This new anthology will include the following:

  • Short fiction
  • Non-fiction (essay and blog/memoir style prose)
  • Thematically relevant poetry
  • Black and white art

This anthology is tentatively scheduled to be published in March 2023.
