Editors Sarah Doyle and Allen Ashley report that they have already had a good response to their call for submissions to the next Eibonvale press anthology “Humanagerie”. This is a gentle reminder that submissions close at midnight on 31 may 2018. Here is the spec:

HUMANAGERIE – a new anthology from Eibonvale Press UK. Edited by Sarah Doyle (poetry) and Allen Ashley (fiction).

“Humanagerie” will showcase both poetry and short fiction on the theme of animals. The book will not be about animals as such, but will instead be inspired by the characteristics that animals possess, and the points at which these intersect with – and manifest in – humanity.

We are interested in shifting states; in scenarios that explore duality, hybridity, and liminality; in the fluidity of identity We hope to discover new existential narratives in the spirit of Franz Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” and Hermann Hesse’s “Steppenwolf”. We are seeking poems and short stories that contain some element of the speculative and/or the fantastical, the metaphorical, metaphysical or magical. Closing date is 31 May 2018. Paying £10 per story; £5 per poem. Full guidelines and details of how to submit can be found at the link below.
