White Trash

As of 4/5/18, The White Trash anthol­o­gy has been delayed indef­i­nite­ly while we search for a means to pay writ­ers fair­ly, instead of ask­ing them to donate their work.

An anthol­o­gy of 'white trash' poems and fic­tion edit­ed by Rusty Barnes and Tim­o­thy Gager, forth­com­ing in late 2016/early 2017.

White Trash: An Anthology, is an attempt, through poet­ry and short fiction–3000 words or fewer–to human­ize those mem­bers of Amer­i­can soci­ety often called white trash or red­necks, one of the few remain­ing sub­sets of indi­vid­u­als it's OK to ridicule and stereo­type. We invite sub­mis­sions from any­one who thinks they have some­thing to say on the sub­ject, those who know oth­ers well enough to impress us with that knowl­edge, and with par­tic­u­lar atten­tion to those who have been iden­ti­fied or self-iden­ti­fy as white trash.

White Trash opens for sub­mis­sions on Octo­ber 1st, 2015: send queries, poems and sto­ries under 3000 words to whitetrashsubs@​gmail.​com. We pre­fer doc­u­ments attached in .doc for­mat, though .rtf and .odt are fine too. Please don't send PDFs. We'll just have to ask you for com­pat­i­ble doc­u­ments lat­er in the edi­to­r­i­al process.

The prod­uct will be a 6X9 paper­back book with full col­or cov­er and ISBN, retailed in all the usu­al places. We will con­sid­er reprints (please cite the orig­i­nal source so we can do so as well). Sub­mis­sions will not be read blind. Response time will vary, but shouldn't take too long. Simul­ta­ne­ous sub­mis­sions are fine; just let us know that's what you're doing so we can try to be quick­er than the oth­er guys. We can't pay you. Any oth­er ques­tions, please query.
