Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures
Call for Submissions, 2013 Open Issue
Digital Philology is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results.
The worldwide growth of English as a first and foreign language has by now necessitated the a term like 'Global Englishes' to describe the range of dialects and usages. Such a term calls attention to the de-coupling of the language from its Anglo-American 'homes', and to the popularity of English as a foreign subject of study. The place of Anglophone literary education, however, is less firm. Despite the fame of certain canonical Anglophone writers and the global domination of Anglophone publishing conglomerates, Anglophone literature is often taught in the service of language rather than literary education.
Wormwood Chapbooks, an off-shoot of A Few Lines Magazine, is now taking in submissions for chapbook manuscripts. We have two different types of chapbooks: poetry books and prose-poetry/flash fiction collections.
For poetry chapbooks, please send us - in a single document (.doc) - 10 to 20 poems, previously published or unpublished. For prose-poetry/flash fiction collections, please send us - in a single document (.doc) - 8 to 15 pieces, previous published or unpublished.
For full details, please carefully read the instructions listed on this link:
A Few Lines Magazine is currently accepting submissions for its fourth issue, which is slated to come out in March or April. Our publication is growing rapidly, and our readership is larger than ever.
We accept submissions of poetry, flash fiction, fiction, and creative non-fiction. We read on a daily basis, so please feel free to submit at any time.
We're in the process of printing our second issue, and the electronic edition of our third issue is scheduled to release on the 7th of December. Please feel free to flip through the pages of our past publications to get a sense of what we publish. We are not partial to any sort of aesthetic per se; we simply aim to publish literature.
