[UPDATE] Ishaan Literary Review - Submissions for Volume 1.1

updated: 
Friday, August 5, 2011 - 1:17am
Ishaan Literary Review (an online journal of poetry, fiction, and dramatic works)

Submission Deadline: Extended to September 30, 2011

Ishaan Literary Review is a new online journal of poetry, short fiction and dramatic works (including plays and screen plays).

We publish (roughly) 50% invited authors and 50% blind read/peer reviewed authors three times a year (Winter, Spring and Summer). We believe that readers should have a chance to see more than just one work by an author, so we will try to publish multiple works by the same author in each issue.

To Submit:

All submissions should be sent to our email address: ishaanlitreview@gmail.com

CFP - Edited Collection - Dancing with Shadows: Explorations in Invisibility

updated: 
Thursday, August 4, 2011 - 4:46pm
Ravindra N. Mohabeer Vancouver Island University

The word invisibility represents a little understood categorical figure in the shadows that surround all research and practice. As a central theme, this collection represents an opportunity to question invisibility as a theoretical construct. How can some things be seen but also remain invisible, purposefully or by accident? How does invisibility allow other things that can rarely be seen to be profoundly influential?
