Winter Anthology Sequel Opens Up Submissions to All of Alberta

It’s only fitting that during this continued cold snap and on a day with temperatures nearing -40 including the windchill, 40 Below is announcing a Alberta-wide follow-up to its successful first publication.

The first 40 Below anthology, released November 1, 2013, is a collection of poetry, non-fiction stories and essays, and short fiction focusing on winter in Edmonton. A total of 300 submissions were entered, and eventually 70 submissions from 55 writers/artists were chosen. The book sold out its first run and is now into its second printing.

Now, editor Jason Lee Norman is putting out a call for submissions for winter poetry and stories from writers and artists from all across the province, including Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Grande Prairie, Jasper, Banff and everywhere in between.

Submissions will be open until July 31, 2014 and can be submitted online here:

40 Below will publish the second book, to be titled ’40 Below: Alberta’s Winter Anthology’ in November of 2015.
