Call for Submissions: Nothing Without Us Too

Once again, editors Cait Gordon and Talia C. Johnson are joining up for another multi-genre fiction anthology. Nothing Without Us, their first anthology, became a Prix Aurora Award finalist for Best Related Work and has so far been taught three times as part of a disability studies course at Trent University!

For Nothing Without Us Too, Cait and Talia are once again seeking stories (500-3500 words) from authors, who, along with their protagonists, are disabled, d/Deaf, Blind, visually impaired or who have low vision, neurodivergent, Spoonie, and/or they manage mental illness and/or chronic conditions. Payment is 0.08CAD. Our publisher is Renaissance, who published the first anthology!

The submission window is open until January 31, 2022, 11:59 pm EST. You can find our submission guidelines here. Please read them carefully before submitting your stories.

May the words be with you!
