Call for Submissions: Literature of the American Apocalypse
As Green Mountains Review prepares for its twentieth anniversary the journal plans a special double-issue on “Literature of the American Apocalypse.” They’re seeking work (poems, essays, and stories), “darkly comic or deadly serious, that centers on American dread, inspired by everything from the current Administration’s war on terror and war on privacy, to continuing threats of environmental degradation, nuclear annihilation, world-ravaging disease, corruptions of culture and language, takeover by clones and computers, natural disasters that some say are caused by global warming and others say are acts of an angry god, or whatever else can be imagined by an end-of-days mind.” Submissions will be read throughout this year (including summertime). Anticipated publication date is May 2007. Payment will be $20/page. For more information, read the announcement.
