Submission Guidelines
Dash is an annual journal dedicated to publishing the best poetry,
fiction, and criticism that is short, open-ended, and emphatic. In a
world that is focused on the quick and condensed, quality is often
neglected. Our goal at Dash is to seek and nurture authors who can create
a meaningful discourse in a small space. It is our mission to publish
new poetry, fiction and criticism from both established and emerging
writers in the English language.
• Fiction and Micro-Lit-Crit submissions should not exceed 1,500
words, double-spaced. Micro-Lit-Crit is a thought-provoking work of
Literary Criticism done in 1,500 words or fewer.

sourcebook is to provide instructors (first time teachers, adjuncts, grad students, or faculty) with
resources for new assignment ideas, new pedagogical tools, and references for assignments and
classrooms activities.

The SCMLA Rhetoric panel invites proposals (abstracts or full papers) for
the 2008 conference to be held on November 6-8, 2008, in San Antonio,
Texas. In light of the theme of “Borders” for the 2008 conference of the
South Central Modern Language Association, the rhetoric panel especially
seeks proposals for papers that address borderlands rhetoric and
alternative rhetorics. In addition, the Rhetoric panel also welcomes
proposals on any topic related to rhetoric, including but not limited to
political rhetoric, visual/spatial rhetoric, the rhetoric of disability,
feminist rhetoric, and new (electronic) media rhetoric.
