Event Details

For this anthology, an animal is anything that isn’t human. I’m looking for non-fiction, fiction, memoirs and poems about that ONE animal in your life, or that you imagined, dreamt of (or had nightmares about), that deserves to be written about and should be shared with the entire world. Your submission can be a pet, past or present, an animal that chose you or a member of your family as its human, but I’m also seeking those occasions of a singular moment with a chance encounter with an animal – like on a farm, at the zoo, in the ocean, trekking through the woods, or on safari. I want prose works and poems that are engaging, heartwarming or heart pounding, works that will produce tears or bring out loud guffaws, terrify me or teach me something about animal conservation, totally true or totally made up, and creatively written.
