CITYSCAPES: Images of Urban Life

For Season 5 of Kaleidocast, we’re expanding beyond the confines of Brooklyn. We’re looking for fictional, fantastical, or speculative takes on life in urban centers. From the milieu of millions of people, to the movements of a single person. We want to see your take on city life. 

Authors/Stories Inspiration: NK Jemisin’s The City We Became, Charlie Jane Anders’s The City In The Middle Of The Night, and Maria Dahvana Headley’s “The Tallest Doll In New York City” 

Some ideas of what we're looking for: 

The hustle and bustle; the noise and sounds of the city 
From high to low; wealth and poverty in the city 
The mythology of urban life; folklore tales that spring from cities 
Or really just anything that suggest masses of people brushing shoulders every day (past, present, or future)"

Word count: 1,000 - 5,000

View the SUBMISSION DETAILS page on how to format your piece according to our guidelines before submitting.

We do not accept multiple submissions per Season. We do not accept simultaneous submission.
