The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its fifth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2018. The theme for this issue is home: home as place, as idea, as state of being. In a society that seems increasingly unrooted and atomized, does home still have its gravitational force and tug? Against the warp and disruption of the current tumult, does it persist? Has it devolved to a walled-off and gated insularity? Can we take it with us when we go? Does it belong to us or we to it?
