Diversion Press is looking for well-crafted poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction for We’re Not in Kansas Anymore, an anthology of responses to the cultural phenomenon of The Wizard of Oz. Topics of interest include—but are not limited to—the idea of place and/or displacement, identity, disguises, memory, transformation, and objects of desire or disappointment.The press posted this call last July. And repeated it in October. But there’s never been a deadline attached, which might be one reason not enough people are responding. So make your own deadline!
Please send your imaginative and previously unpublished submissions (1-3 poems, up to 6,000 words fiction or creative nonfiction, maximum 3 flash pieces up to 1,000 words each) with a cover letter, an active email address, and brief biography to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Oz Anthology, c/o Darla Crist, Editor, Indiana State University, Department of English, Terre Haute, Indiana 47809. Electronic copies will be necessary for accepted work.
