Submit! Rio Grande Review

This call for submissions via La Bloga:

Rio Grande Review is accepting submissions for its upcoming spring issue with the theme of Obsession / Aversion:

"Obsessions can be plaguing and oftentimes, dictate the direction and content of our writing. Here at the RGR office we are especially fascinated with the idea that to some degree, all writers are 'obsessionists.' What we find even more interesting though, is that at times we become obsessed with our aversions. With this in mind, we're asking that texts submitted for our Spring 2010 edition consider this dynamic in some fashion. Whether this means writing about an obsessive aversion, an aversion, obsession, or how the two complement and direct/enhance/or inform one another, that's up to you.

We accept writing of all kinds, including but not limited to: fiction, poetry, non-fiction, memoir, flash fiction, translation, essays, screenwriting, and plays. We accept texts written in English, as well as texts written in Spanish. Texts are published in the language they were originally written in.

We encourage the submission of art (all mediums), photography, experimental texts, visual poetry, etc. Animations and audio files are only considered for our online edition. Deadline for this spring issue is February 5, 2010. Contributors receive two copies of the magazine, S&H paid.

RIO GRANDE REVIEW is a non-profit bilingual publication run by students of the MFA in Creative Writing at The University of Texas at El Paso. RGR has been promoting creative writing in El Paso, the US-Mexico border, and worldwide for over ten years. Our intent is to publish excellent quality work, but at the same time, attract diverse and daring texts that experiment with form. We are striving to forge an identity as a cutting edge review that exists as space for diverse voices: writers who may be multilingual, cross-genre, or experimenting with narrative and poetic form. We also want to be a starting place for new writers.
