Support art, creativity, and free-thinking by picking up a copy…every cent of this project goes directly back into our journal and sustains our next theme. Issue Five: Race, Class, and Gender, is coming Summer of 2018. Here’s what we’re looking for…
Fiction and Art: Powerful stories that illuminate that which divides us in society, how people engage in conflict with others, and sometimes build bridges across the divides. We’d like a diverse group of contributors. We don’t want the kind of writing that is typically found on blogs, or the kind of expression we hear on politically oriented talk shows, or on TV news interviews. That sort of thing has its place. However, we are looking for something deeper, and, yes, more sensitive. What we want is for you to invite others into your world, to tell them about how you see things, your perspectives, your experiences. Each piece is carefully considered, and we look forward to the opportunity of reading your work.
La Revista Almagre does not charge for submissions, but in the spirit of artistic solidarity, consider purchasing a copy, (where one can find contributors; John Nichols, Constance Squires, Julie Shavin, Clay Jenkinson, Mike Callicrate, Janice Gould, Jim Ciletti, Lisa Bellamy, Jeb Rosebrook and many more).
Join our email list for issue/event updates, the occasional exploration on the necessity for stories and art, as well as articles about the Military Veterans’ Community Dialogues. We don’t post too often, so there’s no need to worry about us crowding the mailbox.
A brief word about us: Our journal was conceived in the downtown Y. We publish two book-length, themed issues a year along with special stand-alone projects on the side. Our goal is to promote writers and illustrators from the mountains and the prairies. If you fall outside those geographies, do not worry, we’d still love to see your work. Our intelligent readers enjoy voices from all over the world.
