Invitation to Submit to Sunshine Noir II


Attention san diego writers: San Diego City Works Press is currently accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction for our 10-year anniversary anthology of San Diego writing,Sunshine/Noir II, due out in 2015.

If you have a poem, story, creative non-fiction, or piece of art that captures the realities of San Diego that lurk beneath the booster and Baywatch stereotypes of “America’s Finest City,” please submit.  We want work that maps the endangered natural landscape, sniffs out grit, ecstasy, and irony in the midst of the theme-park city.  We seek writing that deals with the border, work, race, class, gender, urban and natural environments, decadence, tragedy, sex, death, beauty, ugly beauty, and, yes, alienation under the sun.  Everything from traditional realism to formal innovation is welcome in fiction and our tastes in poetry and non-fiction are equally eclectic.

Submit your best poem, fiction or non-fiction of ten pages or less and an SASE for a reply to: City Works Press, San Diego City College, 1313 Park Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92101. If you have questions, please email us at cityworkspress@earthlink.
