The next Pankhearst collaboration is something a little bit different again. No Love Lost will be our first Slim Volume, a collection of poetry and flash fiction. And I will be editing it.
For this anthology, I am looking for striking works of ‘anti-romance’.
What is anti-romance? Whatever doesn’t conform to the ‘someone-meets-someone-else followed by happily ever after’ formula. Think ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, think Tyler and Marla from Fight Club, think The Taming of the Shrew instead of Romeo and Juliet. We love roses as much as anybody, but we love them with thorns intact. Sometimes we even like them withered and chucked in a gutter. Give us the full spectrum of love – the broken, the funny, the tough, the sideways, and the lost.
Send us no more than:
- 3 poems, each 40 lines or less
- 2 flash fictions, each 750 words or less
And send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions will close on August 31st
