Call for Submissions: Museum of Americana

Between December 1st and December 31st, the museum of americana will accept submissions of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, art, reviews, and interviews for Issue Two, set go live in mid January.

We seek work that showcases and/or re-purposes historical American culture. This is, of course, an enormous and diverse tub of spare parts, and we want to see if you can turn them into a hot rod. Give us fiction that dramatizes weird old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry that mixes language  cribbed from The Federalist Papers with language cribbed from WWII propaganda posters. We want medicine shows and riverboats, Doo-Wop and Duke Snider. We want aspects of Americana we may not have even heard of yet.

Please see Issue One and our complete guidelines for a clearer picture of our aesthetic.
