Last call for prose, translations, hybrid work and visual art submissions at Duende!

We are open for submissions until November 30, 2014 for prose, translations, hybrid work and visual art. (The deadline for poetry submissions was November 15, 2014.) Duende welcomes submissions of prose, hybrid writing, and visual art. We are especially interested in collaborations between two or more writers, or between writers and visual artists. We accept submissions from writers working in English, or translating into English, from anywhere in the world. Duende tastes good on the tongue and caresses the ear. Duende seeks authenticity & soulfulness, earthiness & expressiveness, a chill up the spine. It encompasses darkness and intensity; elicits sorrow and joy; wrests a response from the body. Duende aspires to represent the true beauty and diversity of the U.S. literary ecosystem. A majority of the work we publish will be from writers and artists who are queer, of color, differently abled, immigrant, working class, youth, elder, and / or otherwise from communities underrepresented in U.S. literary magazines and journals. Please send us your work! DUENDE Literary Journal seeks your literary and visual art for its Spring 2015 issue. If your fiction will make us feel more human and less alone; if you enjoy exploration of new forms at the edges of the literary universe; if you can bring us elegant translations of literature from far corners of the globe; if your nonfiction is wild and honest; if your visual art is raw and earnest, we want to see it. Our mission is to publish work from writers and artists from communities underrepresented in U.S. literary magazines and journals. Open for submissions until November 30, 2014. DUENDE is edited, curated and produced by students in Goddard College’s BFA in Writing Program. http://duende.submittable.com Visit the website for submission details:...
