New Madrid: Call for Submissions

Oct. 15 Deadline: Irish Famine-themed Journal Issue

There is still time to submit your work for consideration for the upcoming New Madrid issue, “The Great Hunger.” In keeping with Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh’s poem of the same title, the editors invite submissions that revisit the collective trauma of Gorta Mór, the great famine that occurred in Ireland between 1845 and 1852. We are interested in work that explicitly or implicitly addresses such questions as why the Irish famine resulted in profound and long-lasting social and cultural catastrophe, how the Irish developed coping mechanisms in the face of such devastation, and to what degree the famine became a hidden wound in succeeding generations of Irish and of those who emigrated from Ireland. The deadline is Oct. 15. More details on our website:

Calling All Contributors, Deadline Feb. 29th

With the launch of Issue 9 coming in just one month, our reading period is quickly coming to a close. There is still time to submit your submissions before the February 29th deadline.
