Black Inc. is pleased to announce that submissions are open for Growing Up in Country Australia, a new anthology, edited by Rick Morton, which will explore the diverse experiences of Australians growing up outside cities and large regional centres.
They are looking for non-fiction pieces that deal with any aspect of growing up in rural Australia – in all its vast diversity. They encourage submissions from First Nations writers, writers of colour, writers with a disability and writers with a migrant background.
Editor Rick Morton says: ‘I think anyone who has spent formative years in the country has a secret. It might be a good one, or a dark one, and in most cases it resembles nothing of our national myth. I want to know what your secret is.’
