Avery House Press—a New York-based publishing company—is calling on short-story writers from around the country for its newest anthology.
The endeavor, called The 25 Cities Project, aims to represent certain cities that don't usually get heard from—including Baltimore. Avery is asking writers to submit short stories that revolve around each of these cities "to encourage writers from more diverse backgrounds to throw their hats in the ring."
This seems like a good opportunity to dispell stereotypes about Baltimore and allow writers of our growing literary community to be heard. So far, Baltimore only has six story submissions (compared to New York's 47 and LA's 23), so follow the instructions here if you want your story to be published.
Avery hopes to have the 25 Cities published by the end of the year.
