I recently sold a proposal for an anthology titled:
Literary Cash: Fiction and Nonfiction Inspired by the Songs of Johnny Cash.
I'm looking for interested writers who would like to write for the book. In terms of the Nonfiction, the field is pretty wide open for any variety of interpretations, essays, etc. An example is the essay I'm writing for the volume, tentatively, "The Meaning of the Man in Black," which will look at JC as a popular culture icon. The word count isn't concrete but I would expect essays to be in the range of 12-20 pages, typed, double-spaced.
The fiction will comprise a number of short stories "inspired" by a particular JC song. We're hoping that the writer's interpretation will leave the reader with the notion that the story reminds them or is reminiscent of a JC song. Thus far, I've received short stories from the novelists: Gayle Brandeis, Lauren Baratz-Logsted & Greg Logsted, Gretchen Moran Laskas, Deborah Grabien, and Russell Rowland.
I'm very interested in hearing from potential contributors prior to submission. If you have an idea, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
