New Madrid: Call For Submisions

NEW MADRID: Call for Submissions

“Paradise is an island. So is hell.”

– Judith Schalansky, Atlas of Remote Islands

Winter 2016 Theme: Evolving Islands

We are seeking submissions of original fiction, poetry, and essays on the theme of “Evolving Islands” for our winter 2016 issue. Islands are dynamic geographical entities. They appear and disappear on a regular basis due to volcanic activity and changes in sea level. Their ecosystems are volatile. Some islands are covered in ice or snow. Some are inhabited only by wild horses or pigs. Some islands are artificial. Some are imaginary.

Submission Deadline: October 15, 2015.
