The Common Language Project

This year, we invite you to enter the realm of fortune. Strike out and make it, or seek and share what is already prophesied; the choices along the way are yours alone to make. Can you yet chart a course avoiding tempests, literal or figurative? Will you hold, or bet it all? Enchant us with works of risk and reward, promise and peril, decision and destiny. Fortune favors the brave.

See who is included in this year's anthology!
