Submit! Witness

Call for Submissions: Volume XXIV (2011)
Witness seeks manuscripts for a special portfolio titled "Blurring Borders." In addition to general submissions, they invite work that addresses border crossing (both literal and figurative), immigration, and diaspora communities. Witness is published by the Black Mountain Institute at the University of Nevada at las Vegas. They accept submissions online and via the post.

from their website:
Witness is published annually in December. We accept stories, essays, memoir, and poems, and favor work with an international focus.

General guidelines
• Unsolicited manuscripts are welcome between September 1 and April 1. Work that arrives outside that period will be returned unread.

• We accept simultaneous submissions provided that you notify us promptly at if the work is accepted elsewhere.

•Our reporting time is generally eight to twelve weeks, although we sometimes take longer over the winter holidays. After twelve weeks, you are welcome to contact us by e-mail about the status of your submission. In your e-mail, please specify whether your submitted your work online or by mail.

• Please limit your submission to one story, one essay, or five poems at a time. We do not have a word limit.

• Witness pays $10 per printed page.

• Please review the contents of our current issue before submitting.

• We don’t favor particular styles or genres. In general, we seek work that ventures away from the American experience and into international terrain, and that promotes the modern writer as witness to his or her times. That said, we always select the best work that comes to us, regardless of content.
