Segue, the online literary journal of Miami University-Middletown, is
accepting creative and scholarly work for its fall issue:

Segue's dual mission is to serve as a high quality literary
publication and an educational venue for writing instructors and
students of writing. In addition to publishing an eclectic blend of
fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction from around the globe, each
issue features a well-established author who publishes a small body
of new/forthcoming work along with an essay that explores the writing
process behind their submission. Past Featured Authors include Terese
Svoboda, Lex Williford, Diane Glancy, Denise Duhamel, and others.
Further, our peer-reviewed Writing on Writing (WoW) page publishes
nonfiction on a wide range of creative writing-related issues for
educational use, and our Author Q&A page posts email interviews
conducted by writing students with selected authors published in Segue.

Our fall issue will feature creative nonfiction from Brenda Miller,
Associate Professor of English at Western Washington University. Her
book, Season of the Body: Essays (Sarabande Books, 2002) was a
finalist for the PEN American Center Book Award. She has received
four Pushcart Prizes for her work in creative nonfiction, and her
essays have appeared in such periodicals as The Georgia Review,
Prairie Schooner, Fourth Genre, The Sun, and Yoga Journal. She is
co-author of the textbook, Tell it Slant: Writing and Shaping
Creative Nonfiction (McGraw-Hill, 2003).

Submissions are open to anyone outside of Miami University. The WoW
page is an especially valuable resource for instructors (including
graduate students) to use and/or publish in. Possible topics for the
WoW page include, but are 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 interesting in the work
> Interviews with established authors
> The business side of creative writing
> The writing life

Complete details on all the above, submission guidelines, and past
issues are freely available on our web site
<>. Please review our journal before
submitting any work.
