Crossing Lines: The Laughter and Tears of Interracial Relationship Contest
Jibei and J. Michael Yates
What is the best weapon to get rid of racism, prejudice, and stereotypes? The answer is not physical or verbal warfare; the answer is love and marriage, interracial. When two people of different colors, different cultures, and different languages come together and treat each other’s difference patiently, tolerantly, and understandingly, the difference has a chance to lead to a brand new congruity. And, the world will have more beauty and more harmony. Of course, this journey is not full of flowers and smooth rides; it can have more obstacles than anybody imagines: not too long ago, the interracial relationships were still a forbidden topic. Even now, not many talk about it. Yet, many Eastern and Western readers are eagerly waiting for others to speak up. Some of those people hope to find guidance and advice for their existing or future interracial relationships; others are simply curious, maybe even a little prejudiced. That is why we need you to pick up your pen and write down all the laughter and tears of your interracial relationship in either Chinese or English. We trust this will be another interesting and meaningful journey.
We will then collect all the stories and put them into a book. The book will have Chinese and English editions, respectively, and will be published around November 2010 by Cacanadadada Press（www.cacanadadada.com）, a publishing company based in Vancouver. The deadline is August 30th, 2010. Please send all the articles in a word file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Period: Entries accepted between March 8 – August 30, 2010. Early submission is encouraged.
What to Submit: Short stories, essays, or other works of prose, up to 5,000 words each, written in Chinese or English. The theme will be interracial marriage. Each entry should be your own original work, but you may submit works that have been published or won prizes elsewhere, as long as you own the publication rights.
Prizes and Publication: First prize: $300; second prize: $150; third prize: $100. There will also be two Most Highly Recommended Awards of $50 each. The top 30 entries will be published by Cacanadadada Press.
Copyrights: The copyrights of the winning works and the top 30 belong to Cacanadadada Press (www.cacanadadada.com).
Deadline: August 30, 2010. Your entry must be submitted by email to email@example.com as word file by this date.
