Call For Submissions: Polish-American Writers
One of the finest anthologies of Polish-American writing is John Minczeski's Concert at Chopin's House. Published by New Rivers Press in 1988, it introduced me to the world of Polish-American writers, a world I never knew existed. For me, it was a life-changing experience. I thought I was the only one, the only Polish-American writer. Minczeski's book taught me otherwise. It showed me that there was a community of writers who shared my background, concerns, and heritage.
I am honored to say that John Minczeski has invited me to help in editing his second collection of Polish-American writing.
Here's our call for submissions:
For an anthology of Polish/American authors, the editors (John Minczeski and John Guzlowski) seek quality poetry, short fiction and creative non-fiction, not necessarily on a Polish theme, from writers with a Polish background. The anthology will update Concert at Chopin’s House, a Collection of Polish/American Writing, published by New Rivers Press in 1988. Payment, 1 copy. Please send 3-5 poems, or up to 10 pages of prose by Word or RTF attachment to: Polish.Anthology[at]gmail.com. Deadline: January 31, 2012.
