Call for Submissions: A Mystery for Most

Call for Submissions: A Mystery for Most: An Everglades Anthology
Edited by Houston Cypress and Hector Duarte Jr.

The Everglades—not exactly land, not exactly water—covering most of the territory south of Lake Okeechobee, remain a mystery for most: a place of promise or despair, hope or fear. A place in which a burgeoning American empire extended its will on another people in the name of natural resources and the conquest of land.

We seek poems, stories, essays, and photographs that bridge the gap between the known and the imagined, the past and the present, remembering and forgetting, personal and public history. Tell us about pirate ships and dugout canoes on lonely water paths; about swamps, lagoons, and creeks. About the Seminole and Miccosukee tribes, missionaries, universality, medicine men, faith and God. Tell us about YOUR Everglades.

We are looking for your best Everglades-inspired fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and photography.
