We are now reading poetry, creative non-fiction, memoir and short stories for our summer issue.
Deadline: June 1.
Italian Americana, a twice-yearly print journal founded over 35 years ago to promote Italian American scholarship and literature, has just published its first issue under new editor Carla A. Simonini and new poetry editor Maria Terrone. We are looking for fresh poetry on any topic by writers of Italian heritage (either father’s or mother’s side or both). Excellence of the work is the only criterion.
Please send up to five poems in a single Word file, Times New Roman, 11 point font. One-page poems are preferable, although two-page poems will be considered. Your name, address, email address and phone number should appear on every page of the file. Begin the document with a short cover letter, including a bio of no more than 65 words. Please email the Word doc to the editor at:
casimoniniATysuDOTedu (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
“Poetry Submission/Your Last Name” should appear in the subject line.
Creative non-fiction, memoir and short stories up to 4,000 words are also welcome and should be emailed to the editor with bio, cover letter, etc.
