Third Reading Period for “Nobody’s Home” Begins Today
Today begins the third reading period for my current project Nobody’s Home: Modern Southern Folklore. This reading period will begin on February 16 and end on May 15, with works accepted during that period being published in early summer 2021. Hopefully, you’ll see the project’s ads on New Pages and Facebook.
For interested readers and for writers who are considering a submission, the works from the first reading period were published in mid-January and are available to read through the project’s Index. The accepted works from the second reading period will be published in March and will also appear on the Index page.
Nobody’s Home is an online anthology of creative nonfiction works about the prevailing beliefs, myths, and narratives that have driven Southern culture over the last fifty years, in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The publication is collecting personal essays, memoirs, short articles, opinion pieces, and contemplative works about the ideas, experiences, and assumptions that have shaped life below the old Mason-Dixon Line since 1970.
