call for submission #DarkMatter: women witnessing

We are now accepting submissions for issue #4 of/Dark Matter: Women Witnessing.//Dark Matter /publishes writing and visual art created in response to an age of massive species extinction and ecological collapse, especially work that points toward cultural and/or linguistic restoration.Deadline: May 13, 2016

We welcome writing in all forms and genres as well as artwork in all mediums. Context and commentary are required for dreams, visions, and other communications. Notes bridging to the journal’s mission must accompany all poetry and fiction. We also welcome submissions for our /After•Words /column, in which writers offer responses to books, films, artwork, cultural events—not necessarily current ones—that they feel make an important contribution to our mission. Responses can be creative—the work may serve as a springboard for the writer’s own reflections— and they can be as brief or as long as they need to be, within our 5,000-word limit.

The theme for each issue of /Dark Matter/ tends to emerge organically from material we receive. For now, the issue is open.

Submissions in French and German welcome; we will provide translation.
For more details please see our submission guidelines.
