Texas Issue

The Texas Observer calls Texas "the strangest state in the Union." It
is also in many ways America's most significant state: for better or
worse the Texas models for government, business, religion, and education
have dominated the nation in recent years. Why? Where did all
this.this.strangeness.weirdness.power.come from? While it may appear
from a distance that Texas is a monolithic entity, it is not; rather, it
is a collection of constantly interacting and often warring individuals,
cultures, and geographies. What the are the stories, the poems, the
songs that live and lurk beneath the surface of Texas?

Big Tex[t], an online literary journal published at Texas A&M
University, is planning a special Texas Issue for Summer 2005. We are
seeking submissions from Native Texans, from writers who have been Texas
residents for three years or more, or from undergraduate or graduate
students at Texas colleges or universities. We welcome works that
explore the state, that celebrate it, that excoriate it, that capture it
and attempt to place it into some sort of coherent context. We are open
to form-what we require is passion.

Please send:

. Poetry
. Fiction
. Literary Criticism
. Creative Nonfiction
. Visual Art
. Audio/Spoken Word
