Call for Submissions: The Chattahoochee Review – Fall/Winter 2014

6 July 2014

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SKIN

The Chattahoochee Review seeks submissions for its Fall/Winter 2014 double issue with a special focus on “Skin.” Literal and figurative explorations of the theme welcome. We’re particularly interested in sophisticated treatments, whether of sexuality, race, health, species, food, anatomy, or surfaces. Please note the call for submissions in a cover letter and follow the general guidelines below. Our special-focus issues fill quickly; we encourage submissions by August 1, 2014.

GENERAL GUIDELINES

TCR welcomes online submissions via Submittable. We no longer accept paper submissions. General submissions will close during the month of January, but prize submissions will be open during that time.

Since we acquire first North American rights, submissions should be works previously unpublished in North America. Please single-space between sentences. We appreciate a short cover letter with a concise bio that could be used should we publish the work. Please inform us of a simultaneous submission and email us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. Please do not mail or email submissions; to be fair to all submitters, these will be returned unread. Questions? Need to withdraw a poem or part of a submission? Email us at gpccr@gpc.edu. Need to withdraw another genre or an entire submission? Please do so via Submittable.

Familiarity with our journal is the best way to know whether or not work is right for us, and reading in general improves writing; we strongly encourage reading a sample copy or subscribing before submitting. Our current issue, Volume 34.1, is available in a Kindle Edition for $3.99, and the first issue under new editorship, featuring Aimee Bender and Natasha Trethewey, is available for $4 in PDF. Please consider reading an issue before submitting. Our response time averages three to four months, longer only in special circumstances. We read year-round.

Submit only your very best work with our assurance it will be given every consideration.

FICTION
TCR publishes high quality literary fiction characterized by interest in language, development of distinctive settings, compelling conflict, and complex, unique characters. Please read a sample copy. Fiction should be double-spaced with numbered pages and one-inch margins. Submit only one story or up to three short-shorts (500-1,000 words each). We consider longer stories of up to 6,000 words and novellas.

POETRY
TCR publishes excellent poetry of all types, including informal personal narratives, prose poems, and formal poems. We consider English translations of poetry from other languages, in which case a brief biography of the poet and translator should be included. Poetry should be single-spaced and include three to five poems per submission.

NONFICTION
TCR publishes distinctive topical essays and personal creative nonfiction of any kind; this includes pieces that might fit into the memoir, travel, and historical nonfiction categories. We are not an academic journal and publish for a general readership. Above all, we are interested in publishing nonfiction that surprises and intrigues us.

INTERVIEWS
TCR publishes interviews with writers of all kinds: literary, academic, journalistic, and popular. Recent interviews have featured Kwame Dawes, Tony Grooms, Wells Tower, Larry Brown, Claude Wilkinson, Ferreira Gullar, and Kunal Basu. Please query us at gpccr@gpc.edu with a proposal for a particular interview.

REVIEWS AND REVIEW ESSAYS
TCR publishes reviews of current fiction, poetry, and nonfiction books, especially those from writers with an innovative approach to subject matter. Several related works may be reviewed at more length in a review essay that engages critical issues not appropriate to a single review. We are always in search of new reviewers. Please query us at gpccr@gpc.edu about the possibility of a particular review or review essay, specifying your credentials for the review.

VISUAL ART
TCR accepts visual art submissions, photography included, by invitation only.

PAYMENT

All contributors receive two copies.

Deadline: August 1, 2014

Call for submissions: Duenda online literary journal

5 May 2014
Please send prose, poetry, hybrid work, translations, visual art & literary collaborations to DUENDE: the new, online literary journal of Goddard College’s BFA in Writing Program. DUENDE seeks authenticity & soulfulness, earthiness & expressiveness; as Lorca said, DUENDE “climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.” Submissions for our inaugural issue accepted through June 1, 2014. First issue debuts online in October. Writers from underrepresented groups especially welcome.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Letter to Potential Submitters:
Duende…insinuates authenticity and soulfulness, earthiness, expressiveness and a chill up the spine.  It encompasses darkness and intensity.  It emotes.  It elicits sorrow and joy.  It wrests a response from the body.It is a word and concept that experts attempt to translate in paragraphs and pages. In a full lecture on duende given in 1933,  Frederico Garcia Lorca says that it brings the artist face-to-face with death.  The artist must fight to uncover its gifts.  He calls it “a sort of corkscrew that can get art into the sensibility of an audience” and says it “climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.”

We ask you for your deepest and best work.  We who will read and accept your writing and art are fellow students of Goddard College’s undergraduate program (primarily the BFA in Creative Writing).  We chose Goddard due to its rich history of student-directed curriculum which allows eclectic, individualized focuses of study.  Thanks to our home at Goddard, Duende opens to include all forms of literature and art.  We welcome hybrids, collaborations, and other experiments in form, in addition to artful fiction, poetry, nonfiction, interviews, etc.

Push the envelope.  Push yourself and your work just a little more, make your offering just a bit larger, your understanding a layer deeper.

Then send it to us.  We can’t wait to see it.

Visit http://www.duendeliterary.org/ for complete details.

The debut issue and short story contest (four winners shall share a total prize fund of $5000), is sponsored by “Ashes & Snow” artist Gregory Colbert. Debut issue & contest submission theme or creative prompt is “And we were hungry. . . .,” or more broadly, “HUNGER.” For after all haven’t we all experienced hunger? And isn’t it, in the words of Ray Bradbury, that very hunger or “lack that gives us inspiration?” Consideration for contest’s top prize of $2000 is reserved for stories that connect the theme with nature. Contributors are encouraged to otherwise freely interpret the theme. Submission deadline is March 31, 2013. Guidelines, more info and themes & deadlines for future issues are found at http://andwewerehungry.org

Washington, DC October 17, 2012 – Valhalla Press is pleased to announce all the winners of the first Valhalla Press Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction Contest. The contest sought out the best in original short literary fiction and nonfiction work written in English.

We previously announced that the First Prize winner in the Valhalla Press Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction Writing Contest is Jan English Leary for her story, Mother’s Helper, a classic short story reminiscent of John Updike. Jan received $500 and her e-reader of choice, the Nook ST with Glolight.

We also previously announced that Mary Beth Ellis won second prize for her creative nonfiction piece, People Who Choose to Run, written in the New Journalism tradition of Tom Wolfe. Mary selected a Nook Color for her prize, which will be sent as soon as the new version is available.

We are now pleased to announce our list of Honorable Mention winners. Each of these pieces will appear in the inaugural issue of Ragnarok, Valhalla Press’ e-lit journal, which will be published on November 1, 2012. The Honorable Mention winners also received payment of $25 for their work. The winners are:

Loss by Jamie Derkenne

Hip, Hip Harrumph! by Mark Levine

The Atrocities of War by Jennifer Peckinpaugh

Canadian Geese in Phoenix by Davey Jones

The Leaving of Things by Jaidev Antani

The judges will provide individual feedback to each contest entrant over the next few weeks. We apologize for the brief delay in feedback – we are hard at work. Valhalla Press would like to thank all entrants for their help in making our inaugural writing contest a success.
