COOL CUSTOMER

CALL FOR PROPOSALS - VOLUME II 

Deadline extended to May 24th, 2019 at midnight 

As a meditation on grief, Cool Customer aims to be a space for a collective grieving process - to allow for honesty, intimacy, and healing. We are interested in considering the form that grief takes in our work as we process, engage with, and cope with loss and trauma. We wish to explore grief in a myriad of ways, be it the loss of a life, a relationship, or a part of identity.

We are currently accepting proposals for new works and submissions of finished works for the Summer 2019 volume of Cool Customer.

We accept fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, photography, and illustration. We are open to all genres, mediums, and styles.

Email all submissions to coolcustomer.info@gmail.com.
