CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Imagine All the People Literary & Art Journal

May 26 @ 12:00 am - June 23 @ 11:30 pm

ATTENTION! Exciting new opportunity for
Tilton patrons and community…


Imagine All the People:

A Literary & Art Journal
Published by Tilton Library, Deerfield, MA

As part of the 2020 Summer Reading Program: “Imagine Your Story,” we want to share our own stories for others to read. This a community writing and reading project.

In the midst of this challenging time, when most of us would love to be back in our wonderful library, browsing the stacks, and connecting with neighbors about our new favorite books and movies, we are instead pushed to find new ways to build literary and creative community.


A Call for Entries:

This summer, in service of building community, Tilton will publish a literary and creative arts journal called Imagine All the People. We will accept all submissions for publication, though we reserve the right to edit submissions. If we need to edit your piece for length or content, we will work with you.

Fiction / memoir / personal essays / poetry – on a variety of topics* – should be a maximum of 3,000 words. If your full work is longer, we will publish an excerpt with a link to the full story online. We will also accept photography, drawings, prints, and photographs of paintings or other artwork. Comics! Graphic short stories! Parodies! This is a chance to be creative and share your creativity with our wonderful community. Submitted work can be newly created for this project, or previously written / made / published / exhibited.

Imagine All the People will come out in print and online versions. We will provide order forms on our website once the journal is ready to print. Each person who will be mailed a FREE copy! Donations are accepted to cover printing costs.


Submission details:

Age group: Adults and teens (though we will consider work from older children)
Submit all work to: tiltonlibrary@cwmars.org.

All work is due by June 23.

Looking forward to working together!

*PLEASE NOTE: This journal – Imagine All the People – will be a general collection of writings and art from our community. We are also running a project which collects our community stories of life during the pandemic, called “A People’s History of COVID-19 Pandemic,” and those stories can be submitted to this link on our website.
