We’re looking for poetry, micro and flash fiction, flash essay (lyric essay especially), and hybrid works of no more than 750 words. We want to read personal stories, tributes, critique, idol worship, comedy and tragedy. We want you to dig deep into what pop culture did for you, to you, and with you in the 1990s. Whether your biggest fandom was Pokemon or Nirvana, Salt-N-Pepa or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Boyz II Men or the X-Files, we want to read what you have to say. We’re seeking diversity in both author background and topic, style, and perspective. We are paying $10 per poem/$0.01 per word for prose upon publication. The anthology is slated for publication in January 2017. If you are interested in writing for this anthology—and we hope you are—please submit beginning August 1, 2016 but no later than September 15, 2016.
Currently accepting 5-8 poems per submission or 1-3 prose pieces.
