Indiana Review Online: an Undergraduate Project

Lost or Found: 2016 Indiana Review Online Undergraduate Issue

Calling all current undergraduate student writers!

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 11:59 PM EST

The second issue of Indiana Review Online: An Undergraduate Project is on its way–and this time, we are “Lost or Found!” Indiana Review and Indiana University-Bloomington’s Literary Editing & Publishing class have paired up to create the second issue of IR’s undergrad online literary magazine. Composed, edited, and published by undergraduates, we are lucky to be able to work with staff at Indiana University as well at Indiana Review to create an online space where undergraduates from around the world can share their writing.

The theme for this issue is “Lost or Found”. We encourage writing that looks beyond the literal interpretation of this theme. We welcome works about loss, ranging from keys to loved ones, or about discovery, whether taco trucks or “a new purpose” in life. However do not hesitate to send us work that pushes the boundaries of what lost or finding can mean, both in form and substance. Please send us work that puts us at a loss for words!

Metallic Grit: Call for Essays on Craft

As you may know, we are currently reading for the Metallic Grit Special Folio. We think of Metallic Grit as representative of the lasting grit whenever intense work and heat are applied in the creation of a metallic object or being. We believe in this hybridity of writing and want to see your interpretation not only through stories and poems but through craft essays. Show us how writing is resilient, how writing matters not only to you but to the world.

This call for essays on craft and writing as resilience will only be valid for this submission period, deadline October 31st Midnight EST. Please be sure to follow the link here to make your submission.

We look forward to reading your work!

Announcing Our Special Folio: Metallic Grit Call for Submissions!

 Indiana Review will be accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for General Submissions as well as our Metallic Grit themed folio starting on September 1, 2016. We are seeking work that addresses this theme and welcome all creative interpretations.

We think of Metallic Grit not only as a theme but also as a showcase of the enduring yet protean quality of writing. During times of change and uncertainty, it is crucial to remain resilient. We wonder about the raw materials that go into the creation of a metallic object or being. The process requires work and heat to arrive at its luster. There is a lasting grit when something undergoes such change. We call for work that will not only interrogate what creates something or someone resilient but also investigate this hybridity—its multifaceted nature.

Stun us with work that employs unforgettable form, language, character, landscape. Shock us with beauty without forgetting its grit.

SPECIAL FOLIO SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

General and Special Folio Submissions are open from SEPTEMBER 1 until OCTOBER 31 (MIDNIGHT EST). We will only accept submissions during this submission window.

There is a $3.00 reading fee for all non-subscribing submitters.

To be considered for publication in our Special Folio, please be sure to select “2016 FOLIO: Metallic Grit” when submitting.
