Nonfiction and Place: Call for Submissions

September 25, 2009 § 2 Comments


Center: A Journal of the Literary Arts invites submissions for a symposium on the importance of place in creative nonfiction, to appear in its next issue (spring 2010).

Center editors ask writers to “consider place from a variety of perspectives. What is its role in the essay? in memoir? in literary journalism? How do concerns about conveying a sense of place affect your own work? in what ways do you see issues of place animating the work of others?  How is place specific or general? Must place be physical or is it temporal as well? What role does craft play in the development of place?”

Submissions should be between 750 and 1000 words.  Email your submission, in a .doc format with “symposium” in the header line, to <cla(at)missouri.edu> (replace (at) with @)

Inquiries to <barberse(at)missouri.edu> (replace (at) with @).

The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2010.
