Call for Submissions: Megacity Fictions

By David Haysom, published


Megacity Fictions aims to investigate how writers and artists are responding to vast cityscapes which mutate and spread at unparalleled rates, often displaying extremes of global wealth and poverty; vertical towers built on new economic wealth surrounded by sprawls of immigrant slums. Submissions in creative non-fiction, fiction, ficto-critical writing and photography, exploring particular megacities, or the concept of massive urban hubs in general, are all invited.

If you're interested in submitting work or volunteering your services as a translator then you can get in touch by email (, or via the form at the Megacity Fictions page here.

Metropolises such as Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou are all fairly well represented in fiction... but what about the likes of Wuhan and Tianjin? Any ideas?

Am I reading (between the lines) right...that they are not paying translations?

My understanding is that they won't be able to pay for the content they put on the website, but are hoping to have more funding in place for the anthology they are planning to put together next year.
