COMPASSION: AN ANTHOLOGY IN SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE OF GAZA & OCCUPIED PALESTINE
Extended deadline: September 1, 2011
You are invited to contribute poems, essays, stories, songs, whatever short form you like, to an anthology gathered in support of the people of Gaza and Occupied Palestine.
This project is intended to share information about the situation of the people of Gaza and the occupied Palestinian territories, both directly and through exploring the parallel situations and experiences of other people and nations.
Please send up to three pages of work, in any genre.
For longer work, please submit an excerpt of three pages, with a description of the full work including number of pages. An abstract is also acceptable.
Our intent in pursuing this project is to relieve the sense of isolation and neglect that results from the long term and increasingly brutal conduct “for security reasons” that the people of Gaza endure.
The creation of a new homeland on an existing homeland has parallels in many different lands. We invite you to share work that explores your experiences and responses.
