Submissions Deadline: 29th March 2019

CivicLeicester is inviting and accepting poems and short fiction for possible publication in an anthology on the theme, Bollocks to Brexit.
Brexit has polarised the country and led to the normalisation of xenophobia, Islamophobia and hate crimes. Can the harm it is causing be stopped? Can it be reversed? Who should clean up the mess which the politicians have made and are making? What will the future be like for Britain? Who will be the winners and who the losers? Should it be like this? Should the country be divided in two?
Please send the poems and short fiction to civicleicester@gmail.com by 11pm on Friday, 29 March 2019.
