Nobody’s Home will publish its second batch of new works!
On Monday, March 22, the online anthology Nobody’s Home: Modern Southern Folklore is adding eight more works of creative nonfiction by writers from around the South and outside of it. With a focus on the beliefs, myths, and narratives that have pervaded Southern culture in the five decades from 1970 through 2020, the second batch of works accepted to the anthology covers subjects such as our deep love of family, our historical legacy of slavery, and our sometimes problematic decisions to own farm animals.
The second group of contributors includes Rabbi Spike Anderson, Lynn Magill, Norman McMillan, Susie Paul, Jasmyne Ray, Claude Clayton Smith, Randall Weeks, and SL Wisenberg.
Editor Foster Dickson is proud to offer another diverse batch of essays that center on beliefs, myths, and narratives in the modern South. To learn more about the project, its focus, and its goals, you can read Foster’s introduction to the project “Myths are the truths we live by,” or other posts in his editor’s blog Groundwork. Writers who are interested in adding their own voices to the anthology should read the submission guidelines to find out how to submit.
The newly published works will be rolled out on social media on Monday, March 22 then can be accessed on the Index page starting on Tuesday, March 23.
