Editor Jonathan Strahan has put out a call for submissions for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color) authors for his anthology The Book of Witches (Harper Voyager). The anthology is “a big, inclusive, illustrated anthology of fiction and poetry, this time looking at ‘witches’, more specifically your witch and what it means to you.” He says,
So far writers who have agreed to contribute to the book include Linda Addison, S.A. Chakraborty, Zen Cho, P. Djèlí Clark, Indrapramit Das, Amal El Mohtar, Andrea Hairston, Millie Ho, Nalo Hopkinson, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Cassandra Khaw, Fonda Lee, Darcie Little Badger, Ken Liu, Karen Lord, Usman T. Malik, Tochi Onyebuchi, C.L. Polk, Rebecca Roanhorse, Kelly Robson, Angela Slatter, Rivers Solomon, Andrea Stewart, Sheree Renée Thomas, and Tade Thompson, and we are reserving up to three spots in the final book for new BIPOC writers.
If you are a BIPOC writer – regardless of whether you’re widely published or just starting out – and would like to see your work appear in a major anthology like The Book of Witches, we’d love to hear from you.
Submissions will open Monday March 14, 2022 and close 5pm Australian Western Standard Time Friday March 18, 2022. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For complete guidelines, see Strahan’s announcement here.
