Brevity Special Issue, September 2020: Experiences of Disability

Brevity logo

Brevity publishes flash nonfiction: crisp, concise essays of 750 words or fewer.

The editors are currently reading for Brevity‘s Special Issue “Experiences of Disability.

Submit brief nonfiction (750 words or fewer) submissions that consider all aspects of illness and disability: what it is, what it means, how our understanding of disability is changing. We want essays that explore how disability is learned during childhood, lived over the entire course of a life, and how our changing understanding of disability shapes the way we experience ourselves and others. We are looking for essays that explore the lived experience of illness and disability, as well as encounters with ableism, and that show readers a new way to understand the familiar or give voice to underrepresented experiences.

Upon acceptance, you will be asked for first serial rights, as well as the possibility of publishing your work in a future anthology; all subsequent rights revert immediately to the author. Authors will be paid a $45 honorarium for work selected.

More information, and a submissions portal, can be found on Brevity‘s website.

To find out about other kinds of work you can submit to Brevity, please visit their submissions page.

Submissions close Sunday 1 March 2020.
