The Almagre Review, a Colorado literary journal, is now open for submissions for the Chicana and Chicano Issue, to be published in Fall 2019. Deadline for submissions will beSeptember 16, 2019.
We are primarily looking for fiction and essay/memoirs. We are also interested in black & white artwork.The focus of this issue of The Almagre Review isthe identity of Chicanos, who can be characterized asMexican Americans with aconscience-consciousness.
We are looking for stories of the Chicano/a Movementand how the 1960s and 1970s shaped ourlives, how the influence of that era is still with us, and most importantly, howwe can pass that history onto the younger generation.
Send us intelligent perspectives on the current political and social statusof Chicanas/os, and the prognosis for the future. We understand the struggles of our immigrantbrothers and sisters, but we want to focus on the realities ofthose of us who have deep roots in this country, in many cases going back hundreds of years.
On the fiction side, we would like to see short stories about the every day lives of Chicanas/os. Again, to be clear, we appreciate that there are many kinds of Latinos in the U.S., but we want to devote our attention to the lives of the largest population group of Latinos–the Chicanos. Stories can often reveal hidden truths in ways that essays and memoirs cannot. We ask that submissions be no longer than 5000 words. Please contact Joe Barrera andJohn Lewis at thealmagrereview.org
