CFP: New Contemplative Review: Literature and Spirituality (3/10/04; journal)

full name / name of organization:

The New Contemplative Review seeks journal articles and short life-writing
pieces for its first issue, on the subject of spirituality. Treatments of
literature and spirituality are welcome: articles are welcome on any
aspect of the relation between literature and religion, except 'dogma';
but articles of pure theological enquiry are discouraged.

Articles must be 4,000 to 6,000 words in length, except by pre-arrangement
with the editor. Life-writing in general should not be more than 2,500
words, although exceptions can be made. The New Contemplative Review
follows a policy of open submission, both in content and topic: articles
from any discipline or faith perspective are welcome, including
agnosticism and atheism.

Articles are peer-reviewed.

The journal aims primarily to publish the work of young and early career
researchers, although undergraduate submissions are discouraged. Topics of
relevance might include:

Life, faith and writing
Loss of faith, in a religious or political system
Meaning, or its loss, in a specific text
Discourses of anti-religion
Cultural representations of feminist, black or queer spirituality
Spirituality in the theatre

Completed articles and abstracts may be sent to

More general questions and queries should be addressed to

It is anticipated that the journal will have both an online presence and a
print run.

Deadline for initial enquiries: 10 March
