Call for Submissions of Graphic Works/Graphic Narratives: The Account: A Journal of Poetry, Prose, and Thought

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.

Gen­eral Information

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.
Art cur­rently oper­ates on a solicitation-only basis. How­ever, if you are inter­ested in send­ing us a work sam­ple, CV, and query let­ter, you are wel­come to email us:
