In fall 2020, The Common, in partnership with the DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, will publish a portfolio from and about the Lusosphere: Portugal and its colonial and linguistic diaspora, including writers from and works about Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Goa, Guinea-Bissau, Moza, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Equatorial Guinea.
We seek pieces in the genres of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and hybrid works. Pieces may be written originally in English or Portuguese. If written originally in Portuguese, please provide an English-language sample of at least 30% of the piece.
Submissions open July 1 and close on November 15, 2019. Early submissions are very much encouraged, as we will accept pieces until the portfolio is full. Submit here via Submittable.
