Call for November Mss. Disasters

For our November 2022 issue, WordCity Literary Journal will turn its eyes on disasters: Natural disasters such as storms. Human-made as with Climate Change. Political. Personal. From the macro to the micro.

While we leave this theme wide open to interpretation, our hearts are looking towards Iran with grief and hope as its people protest against the killing of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini by the regime’s morality police. We think of Pakistan and the terrible flooding, and the humanitarian needs there, while keeping our thoughts with others in the paths of storms. And, of course, Ukraine, and the ongoing war and war, and war and violence everywhere.

We thank all contributors in advance for considering us with your work, as well as our readers. Without you, there would be no reason to keep gathering and sharing the voices that make up our journal.

Darcie Friesen Hossack is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers. Her short story collection, Mennonites Don’t Dance, was a runner-up for the Danuta Gleed Award, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading Evergreen Award for Adult Fiction. Citing irreverence, the book was banned by the LaCrete Public Library in Northern Alberta. Having mentored with Giller finalists Sandra Birdsell (The Russlander) and Gail Anderson Dargatz (Spawning Grounds, The Cure for Death by Lightening), Darcie is now completing her first novel where, for a family with a Seventh-day Adventist father and a Mennonite mother, the End Times are just around the corner. Darcie is also a four time judge of the Whistler Independent Book Awards, and a career food writer. She lives in Northern Alberta, Canada, with her husband, international award-winning chef, Dean Hossack.
