Call For Black Artists & Writers!
PAID CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
Lucky Jefferson is seeking pieces for Odyssey, the fourth issue of its digital zine, 'Awake'.
BLACK ARTISTS & AUTHORS are invited to submit poems, essays, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, comics, and art that are a response to the following prompt:
Despite being the first Black captain of your crew, you’ve been overlooked for promotions your entire career in the Space Force. One day, you finally receive your chance at your own expedition to the Outer Ring. After launch, your ship experiences technical difficulties and you find yourself plummeting four thousand kilometers off course.
After awakening, you realize it’s been a few days since you lost connection with Mission Control. You stumble through iridescent foliage to discover a bustling city ahead of your own time. You are soon discovered and greeted by the inhabitants of this world—inhabitants that reflect your culture.
Now you have two options: figure out a way to return home or explore this planet and begin a new life. What are you going to do?
*Accepted authors will receive $15 for each accepted work*
