Call for Submissions: ICORN Webzine

Call for Submissions:

ICORN Webzine

The International Cities of Refuge Network has launched its new quarterly webzine.

ICORN’s work focuses on the importance of freedom of expression. Our first webzine issue features the work of award-winning novelist Chenjerai Hove, and the renowned philosopher Etienné Balibar.

We are inviting writers to submit essays on the subjects of
1) nationalism, identity, “the exile experience”, patriotism and/or citizenship
2) cross-cultural literatures, translation, critical analysis of fiction and poetry with an eye on history or current events

We also welcome submissions of poetry*, short stories or short creative non-fiction for our Babel Voice section; and interviews and dialogues for our In Dialogue section. We are especially interested in work we can publish in two languages and SOUND FILES of oral presentations.

Please note that we have an international focus and that *we receive a disproportionately large number of poetry submissions. We enthusiastically welcome well-crafted essays. See our Masthead for details and submission procedures. www.icorn.org

We are a not-for-profit organization and regret that we do not have funds to pay our contributors at this time. We hope that you will consider the electronic rights to your work as a donation for an important cause.
