LA Nostalgia - Call for Submissions
a new LA anthology

More information about what we are looking for...

Call for Submissions for LA Poet Society Press’ new Los Angeles Anthology, “LA Nostalgia; Let’s talk about your LA!”

 

Let’s talk about your LA!

#lanostalgia

 

Everyone has a different experience in LA. 

Some could experience ChinaTown, Venice or East LA in 1955, 1975, 2020… all of these are different, vibrant engagements with the city, who is always moving, modifying, shifting. 

Every decade in Los Angeles is different. Tell us about your favorite LA memory? 60’s? 80’s? 2000s? What did you live through, or what do you wish you could have seen? How many times has that corner store gone through a face lift? Is it even a store any more?
 

Your LA of 2023 could be so different from your 2021 LA. 

My Little Tokyo 2021, could be such a vast experience from my Little Tokyo 2022…

 

So, what’s your LA? 

Come on, it’s your time to speak, and set free, lay down your hair for the LA of your dreams. Show us her teeth. 

 

Who remembers the Alexandria? 

Club World? 

Bang at the Ruby? 

The Derby? 

BookShow, or the Harlem Place Cafe?

 

Let’s bring the city together, with one story at a time.
