Writers of Color 2020 Spring Showcase: call for submissions

Ooligan Press (part of Portland State University’s graduate program in Book Publishing) is seeking submissions from writers of color for the Oregon Writers of Color 2020 Spring Showcase.

The showcase features many of Oregon’s most talented writers and is designed to connect these artists with publishers seeking to hear their voices. 

Submissions from writers of color in Oregon will be accepted  through Thursday, March 12.

 The submission should be about one page (no longer than 500 words) and can be a work of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama, or young readers literature. 

If selected by the panel of judges that Ooligan assembles, you will be invited to read your work at the showcase.  

This event will be held on May 20, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. at Literary Arts. The event will be hosted by Olufunke Grace Bankole, 2020 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient.
