For a long time, Iranians have been migrating to and settling in the United Kingdom. Despite a long relationship of interest and engagement between the two countries, Britons of Iranian heritage remain underrepresented in British literature.

This new collection will expose the realities of migration, nostalgia, hybridity and disapora life in Britain, thereby enabling conversations which, it is hoped, will resound with other disapora communities across Britain.

Writers of Iranian heritage or connection are encouraged to submit poetry or prose (fiction or non fiction up to 10 pages).

-Work should be written in English.

-All subjects and themes are welcome


Work will be considered from previously unpublished writers, as well as those who own the copyright to previously published work.

Please email your submission as a Word document attachment to ibanthology@gmail.com 

Deadline for submissions: 1st August 2019

Decisions will be made in early November 2019. 

Please email questions to the address above.
