CFP: MindFire: All Topics (ongoing; journal)
The award-winning, decade old Mind Fire journal of the literary arts is
returning in an expanded quarterly edition April, 2004.
MindFire Renewed will cover all things concerning the literary arts: poetry,
fiction, nonfiction, criticism, reviews, art, photography, etc.
Full submission guidelines:
Mind Fire submissions open year around.
As always, we are searching for new, eclectic, experimental works of fusion.
Given the expanded format, we are especially interested in academic
submissions of creative nonfiction, articles, essays, and reviews of works in all
areas. Especially interested in groundbreaking literary and historical research,
or areas of history, anthropology, science, philosophy, art, etc. that deal
with literary realms in society or the rise and definition of civilization (eg,
how did WWI or WWII impact style and subject in world literature?).
Intersections fascinate. Beyond the norm, MindFire is also about fusions and the
creation of the new. We're curious to see how issues may be approached in new or
unique ways; how different discplines and sciences may be combined for new
critical theories of revelation; how modern and ancient texts may be evaluated to
predict future literary trends; how these trends via the prism of today's
technologies can predict a future literature; how different media (TV, film, radio,
Web) are impacting traditional writing techniques, content, and styles, etc.
Subject possibilities are endless. Query with a proposal if you think your
research is outside the bounds.
General literary criticism and review also welcome. Scholars at all levels
are invited to participate, as we welcome those inside and outside academia,
newly published and famously or career published. We are seeking an expansive
dialogue on creativity, or as we say it, the fire of the mind. Also looking
for translations (there are specific Spanish, Portugeuse, and Norwegian editors,
however all languages in translations considered when accompanied by original
language version) or work on the art/problems of translating.
Any style or subject welcome. Maximum submission length (strictly not
enforced) is 20,000 words.
Thank you for your time and attention.
