Frontier Poetry - Types of Burns — New Series for Black Voices

web site

Deadline: August 3, 2020

Black Lives Matter. We must all do what we can, one individual choice at a time, to dismantle white supremacy—in our selves, our relationships, our communities, and our institutions. Frontier stands in unrelenting support of the protestors demanding change—we send you every prayer, every bit of energy we have. Stay safe and stay healthy and stay bold.

We have recently published the moving poem by Prince Bush, and he has generously allowed it to be an inspiration for a new series called Types of Burns, for Black voices who have something to say about this moment. This will be a temporary series, as we know that it can be counter-productive to apply separate lanes for necessary voices. Though we are very proud of our track record of publishing and lifting up BIPOC voices, we vow to do even better in the future.

Guidelines
  • The work may be in any genre, under 1500 words. This includes photography and performance.
  • Same rate as New Voices, $50.
  • The Series will run for 8 weeks beginning today, every Wednesday.
  • Black voices only.
We are also asking for folks to make direct donations to the protestors and organizations supporting them. Please donate and use the proof of that donation in order to get editorial feedback from our team. Learn more about that here. If you'd like to help process those editorial requests, please contact us.
