We are at The Paragon Press are pleased to announce our upcoming anthology titled Crave: An Anthology of Addiction. If the title didn’t already give it away, it might be good to note that this anthology will be centered on the topic of addiction. We want to hear about your experiences, your answers to questions such as: What does it mean to have an addiction? Why do we make decisions that lead us down unhealthy, self-destructive paths? Why is it so hard to quit?
Submissions will be accepted in various forms, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, visual art, and plays. You can find more information about specific requirements on our website, theparagonjournal.com/crave. Though each piece must somehow be related to addiction, the type of addiction and how the topic is addressed are entirely up to the submitter. We will be featuring works not only about addiction itself, but also the ways in which our society perceives those struggling with addiction.
At present, the deadline for submissions has not been set, but feel free to keep them coming! Submissions will accepted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) at no cost to you! If you have any questions, otherwise, please feel free to check out our website or contact the aforementioned email (or email@example.com) with any pressing concerns.
