Submissions for Specter's first themed issue, The Hip-Hop Issue, have been extended to May 15, 2012. We're looking for fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and art/photography which embodies a hip-hop aesthetic. The Hip-Hop issue is scheduled for a June 4th, 2012 release (subject to change).
Submissions will be selected by guest editor Rion Amilcar Scott, who appeared in previous issues of Specter, including his Pushcart Prize nominated story, "A Friendly Game." Rion has contributed to PANK, Fiction International and Confrontation, among others. Raised in Silver Spring, Maryland, he earned an MFA at George Mason University and presently teaches English at Bowie State University.
