Specs, a journal of contemporary culture and arts, is now accepting submissions for the first issue, Fall 2008. The editors invite submissions of critical and/or creative work for both the print and web issue. We seek works of fiction, non-fiction, cultural criticism, artwork, poetry, and pieces that blur genre boundaries.
The editorial board consists of writers and academics from various fields. The editors are excited by specialty, an excess of detail, fragments, narratives, meta-narratives, and more. The editors are particularly interested in works that examine contemporary culture and/or cross the critical/creative divide.
We encourage submissions of 300-word abstracts/proposals by December 1, 2007. Articles will be peer reviewed.
Please limit submissions to 6000 words. The final deadline for submissions is February 5, 2008.
Email submissions as word attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Queries can be sent to the same address.
Remember to include a brief cover letter indicating whether you wish to be considered for the print edition, the web edition, or both. Please also indicate the type/genre of submission in the subject heading (Cultural Criticism).
In ONE/OFF, a special section of Specs, we are seeking one-page works that force interactions between the print and web edition.
