Undeniable Writers Respond to Climate Change 2

A project of Alternating Current Press (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (March 2019). We provide the following information as an archive.

About

We are seeking fiction, nonfiction, hybrid, or poetry that addresses the theme of climate change, especially in a unique way. Peri-apocalyptic stories of the near-future, poems about the fracking or rising rivers right in your own backyard, &c. The idea is to talk about what’s happening to our planet in order to effect change, and change happens through writing and reading. Some ideas of climate change can be terrifying and can really shake and wake people up. That’s what we’re seeking. We are looking for creative writing more than scholarly writing, but we will certainly consider well-thought-out scholarly pieces if they contain a human element. Above all, we are definitely looking for that human element. We are not interested in climate-change denial.

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.
