Call For Submissions: Indigenous Futurisms & Imagining The Decolonial

Anomaly is seeking poetry, short fiction, essays, art, multimedia, and hybrid work by indigenous people and colonized people of color.

Work should relate or respond to indigenous futurisms, indigenous futures, and/or imagining the decolonial (future, present, or past). Speculative and non-speculative work are both welcome. Imagine the future, re-imagine the past or present. Let’s talk about what future we’re fighting for. What lives we’re living, now.

Aceptamos trabajo en español o bilingüe, con o sin traducciones. Ang isyung ito ay bukas din sa mga gawang isinulat sa Tagalog o pinagsamang Tagalog at Ingles. Maaring magsama ng salin sa Ingles ngunit hindi ito kinakailangan.

We accept work in Spanish, Tagalog, and other languages, as well as bilingual work, with or without translations.
Please send work, as well as a brief bio, to
Deadline: January 15th, 2018.
