Call For Submissions: “Duende”

Duende, the national literary journal produced by the students in the BFAW program at Goddard College, will begin reading submissions for our next full issue (Issue 7) on November 1, 2018.

Duende welcomes submissions of prose, poetry, hybrid writing, stage plays, screenplays and visual art. We are especially interested in collaborations between two or more writers, or between writers and visual artists. We accept submissions from writers working in English, or translating into English, from anywhere in the world.

If your poems are rough-cut diamonds, slightly off-kilter; if your fiction will make us feel more human and less alone; if you enjoy exploration of new forms at the edges of the literary universe; if you can bring us elegant translations of literature from far corners of the globe; if your nonfiction is wild and honest; if your visual art is raw and earnest…show us. We want to see it.

As always, we encourage submissions from writers who are queer, of color, non-binary, disabled, immigrant, working class, youth, and/or otherwise from communities underrepresented in U.S. literary magazines and journals.

We will remain open for submissions for the issue until December 15. Work sent will be considered for either the issue or for our Monthly Spotlight features. We decide where your work will fit best.

Please follow the links to the submissions portion of our website to submit your work online.

While there, we encourage you to browse our latest issue, featuring the work of many diverse and talented writers.
