Invisible 3 call for submissions

Originally posted at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. All comments must be made there.

Jim Hines and Mary Anne Mohanraj have put out a call for submissions for essays and poems to be included in Invisible 3, an anthology whose proceeds benefit Con or Bust:


We’re looking for personal, first-hand stories between 400 and 1000 words talking about the impact of SF/F stories and what it’s like to see yourself misrepresented or erased, or relegated to the backgrounds. We’re also interested in the ways underrepresented and marginalized writers have worked to reclaim space in the genre.


While the primary focus is on these personal essays, we’d like to incorporate a few poems for this volume as well.


Proposals are due by December 1; head to Jim’s site for more details.
