Call for Submissions: Caribbean Folio


Anomaly seeks new work from the Caribbean in celebration of the archipelago’s diversity of language, culture, history, and its rich heritages. In the wake of recent natural disasters, we would love to learn if our shared boundaries and our shared vista lead to equal concerns.

Work need not be focused on environmental phenomena however, we are eager to read anything that communicates the souls and hearts of Caribbean people as they make their way through their lives in the region.

We are eager to hear the voices of all of the geographical and political Caribbean, as well as those throughout the diaspora. Original work in English as well as new English translations of work originally in Spanish, French, Dutch, Patois, French and English Creoles, Papiamento, and other regional languages will be considered. Multilingual work is also welcome with attached notes or translations. Along with a brief bio, poets should send up to five pieces, and prose writers should send up to two pieces (either short stories or personal essays to [email protected] with "Anomaly Caribbean Submission - Poetry" or "Anomaly Caribbean Submission - Prose" in the subject line.

Call for Blog & Feature Writers

We're looking for writers who are interested in contributing in an ongoing manner to the Anomaly Blog, either by proposing a column or series, or by joining a team of staff writers who both pitch and take on assigned pieces for the blog. We are particularly interested in writers to focus on reviews, interviews, and profiles of artists and writers; and in getting pitches for columns or series that focus specifically on a particular artistic or writing community within the purview of our expanded mission. If you are interested, please send an email to Features & Reviews Editor Sarah Clark with a paragraph about what you're interested in writing about and your CV attached.

Call for Folio Proposals

Anomaly features special sections, that we call folios, in each issue, and between issues. To propose a theme or topic for an upcoming folio, please submit a brief, 500-word description, making sure to specify what genres will be included in the content of your folio, and the names of some potential contributors (you do not need to already have content selected, just a few names as examples!). 

Folios proposals are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis. Propose a folio here.
