Submission Deadline: Oregon Humanities: Spring 2022: “Care”

The theme for our Spring 2022 issue is “Care.” We want to hear stories about responsibility and custody, attention and affection, worry and grief. What do you care about, and why?

Some topics we’re interested in include—but…

Submission Deadline: De-Canon + Fonograf Ed. Hybrid-Lit Anthology

De-Canon resumes its mission of “de-canonizing” by teaming up with Fonograf Editions to publish an anthology of hybrid-literary works by women and nonbinary BIPOC writers.

How does the hybrid form potentially re-define “writing”? And, what fuels a…

Submission Deadline: Portland Review

Great news: there is still time to play Truth or Dare with us this fall! We want to see work that deals with truth – uncovering it, hiding it, coming to a personal truth, living your truth, or work that delivers us the truths you’ve discovered about life.
