The editors of Packingtown Review, a journal of the University of Illinois at Chicago, published by the University of Illinois Press, invite submissions for its third issue to be released in 2011.

The journal publishes creative work in genres: drama, poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and literary translation.

We seek submission of scholarly papers including: literary criticism, interdisciplinary scholarship, comparative literature,
critical theory, rhetorical studies, cultural studies, and political theory.

We also accept for consideration: interviews, critical reviews of books, films and the arts in general, genre-bending work that explores or challenges form, and graphic art and photographs.

Whether scholarly or literary, we welcome edgy, fresh writing that may be experimental or that explores boundary crossings of/between genre(s) and form(s). What does it mean when poetry and prose are indistinguishable? What is lost – or found – in translation? When literary form is fluid, what happens to the relationship between art and criticism? Between the creative and the scholarly?

Please send up to 8,000 words (excerpts of longer works are acceptable) of prose (or genre-bending pieces), 40 pages of drama, or 3 to 5 poems (no more than 10 pages) to:
Packingtown Review
UH 2027 MC/162
University of Illinois at Chicago
601 S. Morgan
Chicago, IL 60607

Deadline: Review of submissions for the third issue continues through September 1.
Response time is approximately three months. For more information, visit www.packingtownreview.com or email us at: editors@packingtownreview.com
