Deadline Extended: Submissions for the first issue accepted through Oct. 15, 2008
The University of Illinois at Chicago journal Packingtown Review invites creative and critical submissions for the inaugural issue to be released in early 2009.
Along with drama, poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and literary translation, we invite submission of scholarly papers, and genre-bending pieces. We publish interdisciplinary scholarship, including but not limited to literary criticism, comparative literature, critical theory, rhetorical studies, cultural studies, and political theory. We accept for consideration interviews and critical reviews of books, films, and the arts in general.
Whether scholarly or literary, we welcome edgy, fresh writing that may be experimental, or that explores boundary crossings of/between genre(s) and form(s). What does it mean when poetry and prose are indistinguishable? What is lost— or found—in translation? When literary form is fluid, what happens to the relationship between art and criticism? Between the creative and the scholarly?
Please send up to up to 8,000 words of critical or creative prose (or genre-bending pieces), 40 pages of drama, or 3-5 poems (no more than 10 pages) to:
UH 2027 MC 162
University of Illinois at Chicago
601 S Morgan
Chicago, IL 60607
Through October 15, submissions may be submitted online to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Packingtown Review cannot accept previously published material. We read submissions year round, and our response time is approximately three months.For more information, please check our website: www.packingtownreview.com
