Call for Submissions - Eborakon Issue 4

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 10:39am
Eborakon Poetry Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 2, 2017

Eborakon is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning “place of the yews”. We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.

Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of artistry and activism. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to artistry and activism. Possible topics include but are not limited:
