Christopher Smith has extended the deadline for submitting to his anthology until January 16, 2018. See below for more information, and you can find the full call for submissions here.
The Black American Polyamorous Anthology Project is an avenue for self-identifying polyamorous Blacks/African Americans/Black Americans to express; through any form written, audio or video; their experiences. To be clear this project is meant to represent ALL self-identifying polyamorous Blacks/African Americans/Black Americans regardless of socio-economic class, age, sex, sexuality, gender, and polyamorous formation. Also, there is NO limit to what is expressed, this anthology seeks to show the totality of the Black American polyamorous experiences (the good, bad, happy, sad, celebratory, abusive, rehabilitory, cautionary, progressive, troublesome, sexual, nonsexual, affective, discriminatory, comfortable, uncomfortable, racial taboos etc…) and its intersections with our everyday lives (as pastors, clinicians, hostess, waste disposal professionals, CEO’s, accountants, artists, mothers, fathers, military members, it does not matter). The goal is to show a robust and true view of our lives.
The project has two elements:
- Written anthology to be digitally released
- Video/Audio anthology to be digitally released and presented at film festivals
The due date for submissions is January 16th, 2018
For more information about and the directions for participation in this project please email Christopher N Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest.
