Words and Images has posted its 2011 submission guidelines: “Words and Images is accepting submissions for the 2011 issue. We are pretty eclectic (erratic?) in our tastes, and will therefore consider pretty much anything. Genre fiction, experimental work, Literature (with a capital L): whatever you have that you’d like to throw our way, just so long as it’s unpublished. We are also looking for two dimensional representation of all forms of visual art. For submissions across all genres we would prefer works that in some way highlights this year’s theme: Resurgam, a latin word that means ‘I will rise again’.” Pays: “We pay contributors in one copy, and $20 per poem and/or printed page of prose. We pay visual contributors $30 per piece.” (via Duotrope.com)

A high-ranking Nazi’s wife and a Jewish doctor in prewar Berlin. A Jewish immigrant soldier and the German POWs he is assigned to supervise. A refugee returning to Europe for the first time just as terrorists massacre Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. A son of survivors and the family secrets modern technology may reveal. These are some of the characters and conflicts that emerge in Quiet Americans, in stories that reframe familiar questions about what is right and wrong, remembered and repressed, resolved and unending. Portions of the proceeds from sales of Quiet Americans are being donated to The Blue Card. Quiet Americans has been named a 2012 Sophie Brody Medal Honor Title (American Library Association) and recognized as a “Notable Book” (The Jewish Journal) and “Top Book” (Shelf Unbound).
