Today begins the second reading period for my new project Nobody’s Home: Modern Southern Folklore. This reading period will end on February 15, with works accepted during that time being published in spring 2021. Hopefully, you’ll see the project’s ads on New Pages and Facebook.
The first reading period went from October 1 until December 15. I’ll be reading those submissions between now and New Year’s. The first batch of works in the anthology will be published in January.
Things are moving right along with the project. I’ve been posting on my editor’s blog, which is called Groundwork, and posting on social media while submissions have been coming in. The original plan had involved some travel to talk with people around the South, but COVID has put a damper on those notions for now.
