Call for Submissions: Packingtown Review

The editors of Packingtown Review, a journal of the University of Illinois
at Chicago, published by the University of Illinois Press, invite
submissions for its second issue to be released in 2010.
The journal publishes creative work including:
creative nonfiction
literary translation

We seek submission of scholarly papers including:
interdisciplinary scholarship
literary criticism
comparative literature
critical theory
rhetorical studies
cultural studies
political theory

We also accept for consideration:
critical reviews of books, films and the arts in general
genre-bending work that explores or challenges form
graphic art and photographs

Whether scholarly or literary, we welcome edgy, fresh writing that may be
experimental or that explores boundary crossings of/between genre(s) and
form(s). What does it mean when poetry and prose are indistinguishable?
What is lost – or found – in translation? When literary form is fluid,
what happens to the relationship between art and criticism? Between the
creative and the scholarly?

Please send up to 8,000 words (excerpts of longer works are acceptable) of
prose (or genre-bending pieces), 40 pages of drama, or 3 to 5 poems (no
more than 10 pages) to:

Packingtown Review
UH 2027 M/C 162
University of Illinois at Chicago
601 S. Morgan
Chicago, IL 60607

Deadline: Review of submissions for the second issue continues through
September 1.
Response time is approximately three months. You will find more information and guidelines here.
