Fresh Ink A Collection of Voices from Aotearoa New Zealand, 2021 edition
Cloud Ink is publishing a new edition of the Fresh Ink Anthology in 2021 and is now calling for submissions.
Deadline: 28th February 2021
Word limit: 3,000
Eligibility: open to all New Zealand citizens and permanent residents
This year the anthology will be themed around the Covid 19 experience in New Zealand.
What are we as both individuals and as collective society to make of the wider and deeper effects, beyond the health crisis itself? How can writers and storytellers, across multiple forms, address the human aspects of the Covid-19 crisis, its effects, both personal and societal, and its legacy? Can we make sense of this traumatic experience through the creative use of language, characterization, and images?
We are looking for pieces of new writing – short fiction, novel extracts, poetry and art work - themed in response to the pandemic that has touched us all in some way. The pieces may be personal writing from life, memoir, prose fiction or poetry, an essay or personal reflection, or a mix of media forms including graphic writing and visual arts.
