The Poetics program at New College of California (ca. 1980-2000s) was a distinctly alien presence among graduate-level academic programs in North America. Focused solely upon the study of poetry, it offered a truly alternative approach to that found in more traditional academic settings. Throughout the program's history few of its faculty possessed much beyond an M.A.

The global lockdown has made us confined to our primeval cave-like shelter of home. The postgobal earth is in suspended condition, as if it needs some time for hibernation. In the face of increasing number of death, we all are seeking solutions, exploring options and thinking of new patterns of life. Surely the world will change permanently after this and if we are fortunate enough to see the post-Corona world, we will reminisce about our pre-Corona days. In between, during the uncertain lockdown period, we expect humankind to respond to the pandemic in creative ways.

We are seeking submission of creative works for a Special Collection to be created from the submitted works in Continuous Publication mode.

MLA 2021 You Didn’t Write, You Rewrote: Revision and Literary Production

updated: 
Monday, March 23, 2020 - 5:17pm
MLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 30, 2020

Writers have long used revision as a creative tool, well before writing classrooms institutionalized it as such. Think of Pound ruthlessly cutting Eliot’s Waste Land, Moore slashing most of “Poetry,” and Robert Lowell turning stories and letters into cinquains, sonnets, and blank verse--and then revising some of those poems again, into other forms. To many, such acts of revision are the markers of a serious writer, one who pursues perfection in multiple drafts.

deadline for submissions:

The Northern Appalachia Review, a new regional literary journal, welcomes writing about, representing, or engaging with the experience of living in or being from northern Appalachia.

We seek work that will establish a voice and literary identity for northern Appalachia, exemplifies the region and its nuanced culture, and/or furthers the ever-evolving definition of Appalachia as a whole.

We encourage submissions from established and emerging writers in the following genres:
