Oyster River Pages is a literary and artistic collective seeking submissions for our annual issue that stretch creative and social boundaries.

  • Ms. Aligned Fourth Edition Seeks Submissions
  • Deadline info Deadline: July 1, 2022
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry
  • Type Anthology

Submissions are now being accepted for the fourth edition of the Ms. Aligned anthology series. We are looking for writing on the theme Coming of Age. As far as we know, this is one of the few series devoted to prose and poetry about men written by women. In previous anthologies, a story set in the Hawaiian Islands satirizes the expectations that people bring to romantic relationships; a poem describes the brutalization of a father and the ways in which this affects his family; a personal essay describes how a girl sought, through her relationship with her grandfather, to recover from the loss of her father. These various voices, portraits, and histories contribute to the breadth and depth of Ms. Aligned. Writers who identify as women, nonbinary, or genderqueer, email  up to twenty-five double-spaced pages of prose or ten double-spaced pages of poetry by July 1, 2022. Find out more at msaligned2015.wordpress.com.
