pacificREVIEW 2018: STATES OF LA FRONTERA

pacificReview is currently hosting an open call for submissions for our 2018 edition, “States of La Frontera” – an interdisciplinary, intersectional collection of work that grapples with the concept and image of “borders” as existing in multiple contexts. “States of La Frontera” refers to the literal and figurative borderlands of space and identity: the physical, geographical, emotional, spiritual, and temporal boundaries and possibilities of being. We are interested in works that embrace and complicate life at the intersection – works that resist hegemony, generalization, and singularity.

“States of La Frontera” refuses translation and is open to works in English, Spanish, or a combination of the two. We accept submissions of poetry, flash fiction, short stories, creative non-fiction, memoir, essays, comics, collages, photography, and visual art.

Submission Notes: pacificReview considers previously unpublished work. You may submit up to three pieces of work from any genre for consideration in this edition. When submitting content, we highly encourage that you include a statement regarding how your work responds to the edition theme. 

Submission Period: October 14, 2017 – February 2, 2018

How to Submit:

We accept submissions both via Submittable and snail mail! 

Snail mail subs can be addressed to:
