Good Cop/Bad Cop: An Anthology FlowerSong Press

Good Cop/Bad Cop: An Anthology

George Floyd. Eric Garner. Sandra Bland. Tamir Rice.

So many others for so many years. In 2010 police killed over a thousand people in the U.S. Black people are 3x more likely to be killed by police than white people. 99% of killings by police from 2013 – 2019 have not resulted in officers being charged with a crime.*The names of the murdered will not be forgotten. We call on poets, writers, and artists to submit work for an anthology that addresses the continuing problem of police violence in this country and around the world.

Our focus is on the people who are affected by this uncontrolled problem—the victims, the victims’ families, people of color, and a society that lives in fear of being shot and killed by those who are supposed to protect it.

We are looking for art, photography, essays, poetry, and other creative works to explore the racism, injustices and soul-killing aspects of this problem. We want artists to cry out in this anthology and demand justice. The anthology will be published by FlowerSong Press, an independent press dedicated to supporting writers of color and their allies.

Projected publication date: 2021.

Deadline: October 1, 2020.

There are no active submission calls for this project.
