Superplus, journal of radical perception

Superplus seeks to recognize the value in conceptual brevity by calling for submissions of microessays maximally three short paragraphs or stanzas in length for publication in its Spring Volume III: Critical Theologies.

While preference will likely be given to pieces falling inside the issue theme, we encourage submissions on a diverse range of philosophical, cultural, and scientific topics, as well as submissions which make use of diverse stylistic and semiotic approaches, including lyricism, images, ideogrammar and expressive graphemes.

Please send submissions to Edmund Zagorin: superplusa2 at gmail dot com

Dante's Heart: Call for Submissions
Tricksters -- 2010

Entries Due: May 1, 2010

What We're Looking For

Tricksters live in a world of ambiguity and chaos. They know no boundaries-- with nowhere they can't go and nothing they can't do, they are oftentimes the world's ultimate creators and destroyers. At Dante's Heart, we are interested in the endless possibilities opened up for stories, art, drama, letters, mixed
media, ... when a trickster takes center stage. We invite you to explore the unruliness of the trickster and so we call for submissions featuring trickster works.

Winning entries will be published in an upcoming (summer) issue of Dante's Heart.
