Philadelphia Stories is accepting submissions for our winter issue by Black writers and artists for our “Black Lives Matter” Winter issue. We want to share stories of Black life. Tell us how you may be dealing with the pandemic, how the protests have impacted you OR tell us a story about how your community continues to thrive, how your community continues to love. Most subjects are welcome. We accept fiction, poetry, nonfiction, art, and hybrid work. The deadline to submit is December 15, 2020.

Based on the popularity of the “speed date” meetings at Philadelphia Stories’ recent Push to Publish writing conference, we are launching our first “Pitch Fest” on Saturday, December 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., where authors can meet one-on-one with agents and editors of their choosing.

Support provided in part by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund
