Call for Submissions: Hawk & Handsaw

Call for Submissions

Hawk & Handsaw: The Journal of Creative Sustainability
"Creative Sustainability begins like this: We begin to imagine how our emotional and physical lives might defy every law of diminishing returns. Then we yearn: We grow ravenous with the desire not to consume, but to be consumed, by the human and biotic communities that support us. And finally grace: We stand in the sweetness of self-expenditure so that every other thing bursts with ecological possibility." – Amy Irving, author of Trespass: Living at the Edge of the Promised Land.

Hawk & Handsaw: The Journal of Creative Sustainability is now accepting submissions for its 2011 issue. We are looking for contributions that defy convention and tackle the tougher issues that stem from life in a fragile world: work that challenges us to redefine what we know about sustainability and genre; work that provokes us, riles us, makes us laugh. Most of all, we are looking for contributions that are fresh, honest, and evocative. We accept poetry, creative nonfiction, short stories, and visual art.

Poets should submit between 1-5 poems for consideration. Writers of nonfiction and fiction may submit up to 30 double-spaced pages. Excerpts from longer monographs are acceptable, provided they stand alone as an independent work. If applicable, citations should appear in Chicago Manual of Style format. Hawk &Handsaw prints artwork in both color and black and white. Visual artists may submit up to 20 images of their work for consideration.

The reading period for this issue ends on 1 October 2010.
