Inspired by Writers Resist events, The Turnip Truck(s) seeks submissions to our new online series, “The Turnip Trump(s).” This series will feature work that reflects on current political events and how these events have affected our lives, communities, and environment(s). Essays, poems, stories or letters up to 1,500 words should offer some critique of and insight into the current political climate.
If the piece was premiered at a Writers Resist event, please indicate which event, so we can give them credit. Participants who read another writer's work at a Writers Resist event may submit his/her selection with a statement that addresses why the piece was chosen, how the piece speaks to "resistance," and how the piece is applicable today. Audio recordings are encouraged.
We send acceptance notifications only, typically within two to three months, but feel free to inquire about your submission after three months.
