STATES OF LA FRONTERA
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
Submission Notes: pacificReview considers previously unpublished work.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
