We value beautiful imagery and seeing the writer insert themselves in their pieces. We wantyou leaked into poetry.

W.I.S.H. publishes Journeys (chapbooks), Jogs (micro-chapbooks), and a monthly ezine. We are currently seeking Jog and ezine poetry submissions.

The Traveling Poet

The Traveling Poet

The Traveling Poet is an ezine that publishes poets ages 12-25, and articles regarding traveling, hitchhiking, poverty, and philosophy. This project's goal is to display to youth writers that publishing is only a small piece of poetry. We promote creating for Self, and freedom, both in literature and living.

The biggest turn-away we can receive, besides not following the submission guidelines, is Beat Generation re-enactments. They had their time. Now it is ours. We seek voices of the 21st century America, not the America 50 years gone.

Isms: An Exploration of the Invisible Barriers of Classification (March 22nd) Extended Deadline

updated: 
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 8:03pm
Sigma Tau Delta Iota Chi

We welcome work that aims to dissect various "isms" of the past, present, and even future, in order to examine their individual parts. How are these constructs created and propagated? What controls their upkeep? Should isms be cultivated or avoided? Do they isolate or unite, stigmatize or revolutionize? Can examining these structures help us re-imagine what power can/should be, or will we merely be reconstructing a new form of power?

We invite graduate and undergraduate creative and scholarly works that explore, scrutinize, dismember, defend, or create the isms that affect us all in seen and unseen ways every day.

Poet Mahmoud Darwish observed that "the geographical part of History is stronger than the historical part of geography." We ignore space at our peril. The 2014 UCLA Comparative Literature Graduate Conference seeks to critically engage a wide range of regional and literary interests, traditions, and disciplinary methods both classical and modern, around the theme of geography.

B-Side Modernism Fellowship Information:

Danowski's synoptic ambition—to collect literally all poetry in English published in the twentieth century, including the independent journals,
short-run chapbooks and broadsides that gave Modernism its distinctive energy—has created an opportunity to examine the materials out of which our accounts of the century – both the longstanding ones and the most recent efforts to revise them—have been made, but without the influence of a shaping hand.

Recent research in the cognitive sciences has inspired a wealth of new approaches to the study of mind, consciousness and embodied experience. For researchers in the humanities, the cognitive turn has challenged long-established definitions of what it means to be human. This conference will scrutinise the implications of neuroscientific research on the ultimately human capacity to create culture (literature, art, music, etc).

The Luminary (Lancaster University)

Call for Papers for Special Journal Issue:

Some voices in art, literature and culture are muffled, hushed or even silenced. Other voices deliberately hide, perhaps masking one meaning behind another. The forthcoming issue of The Luminary is interested in exploring the voices that whisper at the edges of the conversation, in uncovering the conversations going on underneath the hubbub, in exploring the role of hidden or hushed voices in Western art, culture and literature. We welcome both critical and creative submissions.

[UPDATE] CFP: Interdisciplinary Approaches to (Re)examining Southern Canonical Texts Deadline Extended

updated: 
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 8:39am
The Society for the Study of Southern Literature Biennial Conference Arlington, Virginia, March 27-29, 2014

As southern literary studies continue to expand beyond regional borders, it is important to examine not only contemporary southern texts but also to (re)envision the significance of canonical texts. The "old" is, therefore, not overshadowed by the "new" but reinvigorated by research outside of traditional literary scholarship. This research becomes a springboard for creating a new space of relevance for the past in the present, while simultaneously attracting new audiences.
