microAGGRESSION: Then & Now

microAGGRESSIONCurrently accepting written submissions (poetry, essay, journal entry, short story, thought pieces) for our anthology “microAGGRESSION: Then & Now”. The Preface will provide you with additional insight into what will fit this publication. Accepting three pieces. Reference the standard anthology submission guidelines posted above.

Submissions Open From June 30 2017 – Until enough submissions received.

(Don’t wait and miss your opportunity!)

Tolerance. Insensitivity. Intolerance. Over-sensitivity.

Here are some examples of what we are looking for:

  • Ever felt insulted and injured by something a person did or said to you, but didn’t know if that person was conscious of what they had done to you?
  • What about backhanded compliments that are made by friends, co-workers, family members or even strangers? How are you affected by slights and backhanded compliments — long term and short term?
  • Define what microaggression is TO YOU. Breakdown the word. Attach a meaning that is personal or universal according to your vantage point.
  • Microaggressive behavior leads to what? Explore the provactions, both real and imagined.
  • Is microaggression even real to begin with? When did it start? When will it end?  Or will it simply fade to black with the invention of a new word that holds a similar definition?

Preface . . .

Balance is key in understanding the impact of Microaggression or, depending on your viewpoint, the lack thereof. Does it affect you, personally? Does it affect somebody you love? Is it real? Is it cultural? Or is it just some fancy “new” term used to further complicate how people communicate with one another. Should it be ignored, or highlighted and explored? Is it worth your time? The purpose of this anthology on the subject of Microaggression is to explore its ceiling from the surface and below. This book, “Then & Now”, will serve as a manual on this topic and more importantly, inspire generations to take a closer look at the layers of human communication that go unspoken for time and time again.
