  • Otis Nebula Seeks Incandescent, Substantial Work By Gen X Writers
  • Deadline info Deadline: May 1, 2019
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Art, Photography, Cross-genre, Drama, Comics, Reviews, Interviews, Translations, Audio, Video
  • Type Magazine

Gen Xers, the last humans to have come of age in pre-digital times, possess a peculiarly essential, even radical perspective. Not only have they managed to avoid the aggressive aspirational tendencies that drive Boomers and Millennials but, as writers, they understand that the freedom to explore and express points-of-view other than those into which they were born is at the core of art in general and literature specifically. For these and other reasons, we’re turning ON into a safe-space specifically for them. Visit our Contribute page to learn more. www.otisnebula.com
