When we talk about immigrants, we tend to focus on those who come here seeking greater opportunity, higher education, and the American Dream. But, what about those for whom America was not their first choice, who ended up here because of war, persecution, colonization, adoption, migration, and displacement? If you have ever felt excluded, unwanted, or like you didn’t belong, if your Americanness has ever been challenged or denied, if you don’t fit neatly into a box on the Census… we want to hear from you. Refugees, Dreamers, transnational adoptees, third culture kids, parachute kids, deportees, citizens of US territories overseas, Indigenous people, descendants of enslaved people: Tell us your stories for a special folio of Anomaly. Send up to 4,000 words of essay, memoir, creative nonfiction, poetry, or hybrid narrative, to [email protected].
