In the meantime, here are some calls for manuscripts, and, for you shiny new graduates, an opportunity for a post-grad fellowship. When you have news to share or publication possibilities to pass on, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you're looking for an opportunity to spend another couple of years honing your craft, apply for a Kenyon Review postgraduate fellowship, which includes a hefty stipend, individual meetings with faculty members, a semester of teaching each year, and editorial assistance on the Kenyon Review. Requirements are an MFA and experience teaching undergrads in creative writing or literature. The deadline is Oct. 1, so hurry. (h/t Valerie Miner)
- Camas: The Nature of the West, the University of Montana's Journal of Environmental Literature, is seeking submissions for its Winter 2013 issue, themed Progress. The theme is meant to be broadly interpreted and to provide unity for a diversity of works. All submissions of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, artwork, and photography will be considered. Please visit here for more details. (h/t Zack Rogow)
- Kathleen Dean Moore and Scott Slovic have issued a call for writings about climate change for ISLE, the Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment. They write: "We have previously published climate-related articles and literary work in the pages of ISLE, but there has never been a focused cluster devoted to this essential topic. Now, with a short turn-round time that reflects the unprecedented urgency of this challenge, we invite readers of ISLE to send us scholarly and creative work for a global-warming cluster that will appear in the Winter 2014 issue of the journal. We can consider work received by September 30. Please contact us if you have any questions (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org)." You can read their entire message here. Oh, and you should join the Association for Study of Literature and Environment first.
