Entries are now closed for Body 2 Body, Malaysia's first queer anthology. We received 59 submissions. If you want to get mathematical about it, this is 47.5% more than our target. Almost half the entries were sent on the last 2 days.
Thank you for your stories and essays! The deadline will not be extended.
The two editors, Jerome Kugan and Pang Khee Teik (as quoted in Time.com!) will now select their 20 favourite entries. The identities of the writers have been hidden from them, so it will be interesting to see who gets picked.
The writers will be informed in about a month. Looks like we are on track for a launch in early August, so wish us luck! I trust that this ground-breaking anthology will drop a few jaws, melt a few hearts, and quicken a few pulses -- and that's just the Introduction.
