Segue 5.1: The Five Year Anniversary Issue, is now available online, and
the editors are accepting creative and scholarly work for its fall issue.
Please read on for details, then visit <http://www.mid.muohio.edu/segue/>.

Segue's mission is to celebrate and illuminate the whole writing process,
rather than to focus solely on the writing product. Toward this end, our
Featured Authors publish short collections of new/forthcoming creative work
along with a nonfiction piece that explores the writing process behind
their submissions. Past Featured Authors include Terese Svoboda, Diane
Glancy, Brian Kiteley, Denise Duhamel, and Katharine Haake. Issue 5.1
features new poetry from Australian poet Christopher Kelen in dialogue with
the Tang Dynasty poet, Meng Jiao, along with Kelen's essay about his poetry
project and highlights in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction from our
last five years. Issue 5.2, featuring novelist Lex Williford, will appear
in November of 2006. The editors are seeking electronic submissions of
fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction for this issue.

In addition to publishing an eclectic blend of high quality literatures,
Segue serves as an educational tool for writers, teachers, and students.
Our Author Q&A page publishes transcripts of interviews between writing
students and Segue authors, and our new-ish Writing on Writing page
publishes nonfiction from writers, graduate students, writing instructors,
and others on a range of creative writing-related issues (among other
things, the WoW page is a great place for graduate students to publish
conference papers and other scholarly work). We encourage educators to use
our publication in the classroom, and to contact us with their ideas for
collaboration at segue_at_muohio.edu. Segue is currently accepting submissions
of research essays, conference papers, critical narratives, informed rants,
and other forms of nonfiction on topics including, but not limited to:

> Creative writing pedagogy (we're especially interested in this)
> The state of creative writing in academia
> Creative writing in academia v. the alleged "real world"
> The craft/process of writing fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction
> Creative writing exercises (with explanations of their origin, purpose,
and if possible, examples of completed exercises)
> Close readings of the literary works of established authors, with an eye
toward illuminating something in the work of value to writers
> Interviews with established authors
> The business side of creative writing
> The writing life

Before submitting creative or scholarly work, please read our past issues
and our submission guidelines, all of which are freely available on our web
site: <http://www.mid.muohio.edu/segue/>.
