Call for Submissions from Illinois Writers: Uproot Magazine

As mentioned in our updated mission statement, we are expanding our net across the entire state of Illinois, rather than emphasizing only Central Illinois. Where we were exclusive to places like Springfield, Peoria, Bloomington, and Jacksonville, we’re also including places in Northern and Southern Illinois, such as Alton, Steeleville, Carbondale, Cairo, Du Quoin, Galesburg, and Grand Tower, along with Chicago and all of its suburbs.

For Issue 2, we are looking for stories that emphasize abandonment. Abandoned homes, abandoned buildings, abandoned people. Works that focus on either the act of abandoning a person, a place, or a thing; or, the act of discovering something or someone that has been left behind. We want to know why people leave things behind, or what happens when people find something. Is it a case of simple forgetfulness, or is abandonment intentional, is it haunting?

Send submissions to:

uprootmagATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)

Submission deadline is 04/30/14.

Submit a maximum of 300-5,000 words for Fiction/Nonfiction

Submit a maximum of 5 photos
