Issue 14 Call for Submissions
In Issue 14, we are delving into the intricacy of our roots.
We are inspired by Theodore Roethke’s poetic gem: “Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.”
Ideas we would love to see explored include:
- What are the roots that bind us? To each other, and to the Earth.
- Traditions root us. How are they rotten or nourishing?
- What are the little habits and rituals that root us in our daily life?
- How do we make new roots to anchor ourselves?
- How do we root ourselves beyond the past into the here and now, and even . . . into the future?
We accept fiction, nonfiction, visual art, and poetry of all flavors, from free verse to found. We are also interested in submissions that include raven artwork.
Submissions will be accepted until June 20th, 2021. Check out our guidelines for submission requirements.
