We invite papers to address this topic from creative perspectives, including bodies of text, bodies of work, the human and non-human body, and so on. We value innovative and inventive interpretation of both subject matter and presentation, and welcome work that embraces digital media, including multimodal and hyperlinked work. We accept work from both Literature and Rhetoric & Composition disciplines.

The journal offers a unique opportunity for graduate students to develop a publishing identity grounded in new techniques and approaches to writing.
