Drunken Boat
 is calling for submissions of literary and artistic pieces created by, or inspired by, voices of color from the Appalachian region for an AffrilachianArts Folio as part of our 15th anniversary celebration issue.  We are especially looking for work that juxtaposes place and displacement, questioning and confronting how one shapes cultural and personal identity within a physical setting. Submissions of prose, poetry, art, or performance-based work (such as spoken word poetry) will be accepted. Deadline is May 15, 2014. Submit previously unpublished (or published in a small circulation print journal) work as a Microsoft Word attachment, or audio/video links, along with a short bio, to paintedplume@gmail.com.

Folio Editor:

Kalela Williams.

Williams is currently the coordinator of One Book, One Philadelphia, an eight-week flagship program of the Free Library of Philadelphia. For more information, visit http://libwww.freelibrary.org/onebook/obop14/.
