Hey, They Stole Our Concept?

September 14, 2009 § 2 Comments

But still, it is nice for those whose work doesn’t quite fit into Brevity to have more options, so we share with you:

Beginning September 10, 2009 until November 15, 2009 the Yalobusha Review will begin accepting works of literary non-fiction of lengths no more than 750 words. We are looking for stand alone topics that vividly capture exact moments that might otherwise go unnoticed. Though we are not looking for a particular aesthetic, writing that takes chances, pushes the boundaries of language and does not rely on either narrative or sympathy posseses the greatest chance of publication in the 2010 issue.   Include a cover letter with the title of your piece. Include SASE with submission for notification of results. We retain first North American rights.  Payment is a contributor’s copy.

Please send submissions to:

Yalobusha Review
Travis Morris, Non-fiction Editor
Department of English
University of Mississippi
P.O. Box 1848

    I mentor writers who live in South Asia (and I edit a South Asian magazine that can be seen and read as an archive doc, online, at http://www.ecs.com.np). My observation is that by requiring submissions by post, including SASE with American stamps, only USA writers can submit anything. International writers are left out in the cold. Is this intentional, ignorance, or oversight? I suggest that these literary journals (and magazines, etc.) open up to international writers of English prose and allow entries by email and announcement of winners by return email or posted on site. Any chance of that?

  • I read this journal’s extended submission guidelines on its web site and recall that an exception is made for writers outside the USA to submit electronically.
