Accepting Submissions for “Resistance,” Summer 2020 DoveTales
March 16 @ 8:00 am - June 15 @ 11:30 pm
From Guest Editor, Brad Wetzler
As a theme for the volume, I’ve selected “Resistance.” Why? Because, well, it’s time. History’s greatest peacemakers, such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela, have taught us that peace is never passive. Sometimes those of us who love peace must do more than be living examples of peace. We must act, do, rise up, bang the gong, take to the streets. It’s obvious that now is one of these times. By any peaceful means necessary, we must resist the backdoor decisions and cruel acts of power-mongering politicians and corporate leaders who would create suffering for the world’s citizens, especially the vulnerable and powerless. We must use our voices and vast numbers to stop the madness and bring attention back to the one thing we all share in common: our humanity.
I’m looking forward to seeing the different ways our contributors interpret “Resistance.” I know we will publish thoughtful essays, articles, fiction and poetry, as well as art and photography that illuminates the path forward for us warriors of peace.
Resistance will be published online on August 1st, 2020, and available in print through our anthology on December 1st, 2020.
