Signs of Life is looking for your on-theme stories:
Signs of life is an upcoming literary anthology themed around first- and second-hand experiences of illness and care-giving.
How do experiences of sickness or incapacitation change our bodies, who we are, and how we see the world? And how do they affect the people around us?
Writers are asked to write from the point of view of the patient, care-giver (professional or otherwise) or kin. The illness depicted may be acute or chronic, life-threatening or relatively minor. We are anticipating stories that interrogate the difficulty and challenges of not being well but also those of connection, change, humour and growth.
They’re accepting up to 2 submissions of fiction or creative non-fiction each, and paying $100 AUD per accepted piece. Get your stories in before 31st of December 2019!
