Crack the Spine: The Year Anthology 8

A project of Crack the Spine

About

A good literary anthology should provide not only entertainment, but also a snapshot of the culture from which the anthology originates. With this goal in mind, we are pleased to announce a new project at Crack the Spine: "The Year" Anthology. Our mission with this year-in-review style anthology is to capture a snapshot of our culture in an ever-changing landscape. With so much rapid alteration, rabid division, and creative diversity enveloping us daily, we often find ourselves pausing merely to wonder “how did we get here?” This anthology seeks to fill in that gap by providing a record of our world, as it changes.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
