Whether your worlds are real or imagined, literal or metaphorical, for a special feature in our Summer 2022 issue, we’re seeking work that examines the borders between them. Send us your work about crossing borders, blurred borders, collapsed borders, about living on the edge. Think natural borders, socially constructed and geopolitical borders, or perhaps the space between life and death. Send us your haunted places and portals to fairylands; explore the boundaries that keep out and keep in. Cross the stratosphere, go deep underground, get lost in the wilds. Whatever your borders, wherever your worlds, we want to see them.
Character-driven speculative work is welcome, and we are especially excited by work that engages deeply with place.
All submissions should be original and unpublished. We’re accepting work of any genre, whether it’s fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, or something we’ve never imagined. (Please specify the genre in your cover letter.)
Be sure to review our submission guidelines, available here and on our Submittable page. The submission period for this feature is September 1 through October 31, and all submissions will be considered for publication in the Summer 2022 print issue of Indiana Review.
