I am pleased to announce an open submission call for a forthcoming anthology on colorism with NYU Press, which will include a collection of essays written by Asian American women about their personal experiences with colorism.
I am looking for Asian American women (including multiracial American women with Asian ancestry) to share their personal experiences with colorism – how has your skin shade (and other “racialized” physical features like eye color, eye shape, and other facial features) influenced your life?
DEADLINE: Manuscripts will be accepted on a rolling basis, though the final deadline is OCTOBER 31, 2017.
• Submissions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org (in the subject heading, please type in all-caps: SHADES OF PREJUDICE SUBMISSION)
• Please send your personal narrative as a Word document and label your document: “LASTNAME_FIRSTNAME.doc.”
• Essays should be approximately 1,000-2,500 words, double-spaced, and Times New Roman font.
