The Account: A Journal of Poetry, Prose, and Thought is reading submissions for a special Spring ’15 issue: “Graphic Works/Graphic Narratives.” We’re seeking graphic narratives, illuminated manuscripts, rebuses, illustrations evocative of stories, and poems that interact with the page as a visual landscape (such as concrete poems, erasures, and prose poems). Please submit work via Submittable by March 15th for consideration. The Account does not have a reading fee. However, we do require work to be paired with an “account” (of 150–500 words) that describes the thought, influences, and choices that make up your aesthetic as it pertains to the specific work you send us.
account = history, sketch, marker, repository of influences
An account of a specific work traces its arc—through texts and world—while giving voice to the artist’s approach. We ask that if you choose to be satirical, you do so in service of the work you are submitting. We are most interested in how you are tracking the thought, influences, and choices that make up your aesthetic as it pertains to a specific work.
Please use Submittable to submit. We will not consider work without an account. We do read simultaneous submissions.
You may still submit work under one of our general categories for a later issue.
Please review The Account: A Journal of Poetry, Prose, and Thought submission guidelines for poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
We will not consider work submitted without an account. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but your work must be withdrawn immediately if it is no longer available. Authors retain their copyright and will receive a contract upon acceptance.
Criticism operates on a solicitation-only basis.
