BROAD STREET: nonfiction magazine-- true stories, honestly

updated: 
Friday, January 13, 2017 - 2:38pm
Broad Street Magazine
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 11, 2018

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We are a truly interdisciplinary journal published primarily in print but with a strong web presence.  We want beautifully crafted, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, memoirs, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews. We hope to create an engaging intersection where writing, poetry, and artwork can converge in one space to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not through an academic lens.  Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professor.  Think NPR.  Think New Yorker.  Think Broad Street.

“[O]ld Maid and musty Widows are like the plague shun’d of by all men…” So says Doll Pacify from Margaret Cavendish’s Bell in campo (1660).

We’re excited to announce that the CfP is now open for the Queer Modernism(s) conference. The conference will be held at Nottingham Trent University on Monday April 03rd, 2017.

About the conference

‘Somewhat like Ariel / Somewhat like Puck / Somewhat like a gutter boy / Who loves to play in muck’ – Richard Bruce Nugent

Queer Modernism(s) is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to explore the place of queer identity in modernist art, literature and culture. How do modernist artists frame queerness within their work? How did writers reveal and conceal their sexuality? And, in ‘making it new’, how did modernism develop new modes of exploring gender and sexuality?
