Portland Review: “Labor” Anthology
Deadline September 2 (must be received by this date). Portland Review seeks submissions of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and mixed-genre works for its 2020 themed anthology on "Labor". Editors say, "We are thinking about labor as work or employment, and how it relates to the body and the self. But we don't just want stories about working; we want to read about labor in all its forms: physical, emotional, invisible, and theoretical. How does labor influence the self and our orientation to the world? How does the self influence labor? We want to see examinations of labor as breathing, as birth, as historical movement, as formation, blood and germs, the gig, empathy, art, opposition, reciprocal energy, exploitation, werq, family-making, beasts of burden, language, and monetization." Contributors receive $30 and a print copy. Founded in 1956, Portland Review is a publication of Portland State University in Oregon. See their suggested reading list of contemporary literature that explores "labor" in creative ways.
