Editing new anthology about revelations and reconciliation in Canada

Call for Proposals

What was your Aha! or light bulb moment around colonialism in Canada? Is there a particular time in your life that brought native-newcomer relations into sharp focus? Or perhaps a flash of insight into how we can decolonize our country and move forward in a spirit of real reconciliation? Unsettled will explore these questions through magazine-style essays of between 1500 and 3500 words.

Please submit your short proposal and bio (250 words max) to the anthology editor, Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail at info [a] daniellemc.com. Brindle & Glass will publish this anthology in Spring 2016.

Since we’re looking for a diversity of contributors from across the country, please indicate where you live, if you identify as indigenous, and any other unique perspective you feel you can bring to this project.

These abstracts must be received by January 1, 2015. Notifications and invitations for full essays will be sent by January 15, 2015. Completed essays are due by March 15, 2015. You will receive a small honorarium and two author copies of the anthology upon publication.

Please note: The essay cannot have appeared elsewhere or be slated for publication in any other form, including online.

Thanks so much for your interest in this exciting project!
