We are now reading poetry, creative non-fiction, memoir and short stories for our Winter 2018 issue.
Deadline: October 15.
For detailed information, please visit our website.
Italian Americana, a twice-yearly print journal founded over 35 years ago to promote Italian American scholarship and literature, is calling for work for its next issue. The most recent issues have included poetry by Anne Marie Macari, Gerry La Femina, Maria Mazziotti Gillan and Peter Covino. We are looking for fresh poetry on any topic by writers of Italian heritage on one or both sides of their family. Please mention the connection in your cover letter or bio. Please Note: We have no special preference for poems on Italian-related subjects. Excellence of the work is the only criterion.
Please send up to five unpublished poems in a single Word file, Times New Roman, 11 point font.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, Carla Simonini, at:
italianamericanaATysuDOTedu (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
“Poetry/Your Last Name” should appear in the subject line.
Creative non-fiction, memoir and short stories up to 4,000 words are also welcome. Please consult the website for details.
