call for submissions for Darwin-themed issue: New Madrid
- Call for Submissions: New Madrid
Please note two things: the reading period starts in August, and they accept submissions only through their web site (the address is below). NEW MADRID is a fairly new journal, very nicely done, and well-edited. It is out of Murray State University in Kentucky.
In keeping with its location in the Bible Belt, New Madrid will dedicate
its Winter 2009 issue to the theme of “Intelligent Design.” We're
interested in receiving submissions that address the legacy of Darwin, the
impact of the evolution-vs-creationism debate on the public schools, the
cosmological argument, etc., provided they are literary in form and intent.
The staff is also interested in receiving submissions of works that let
their structures show—for example, poems in received forms or nonce forms,
and fiction and non-fiction utilizing unorthodox narrative devices (for
example, frames within frames)—as well as in works that consider design
issues from the perspective of other disciplines (for example, architecture, quilting, graphic arts, the natural sciences, etc.). Our hope is to reinvigorate the phrase “intelligent design” by approaching it from a
multiplicity of angles.
