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 Brenda Miller, 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.

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.
