call for submissions: qarrsiluni
- The editors invite submissions of poetry, short fiction, essays, visual
poetry, photography, artwork and video for a translation-themed issue.
The deadline is December 6, and the issue will begin to appear online
after the New Year. All submissions must be made via qarrtsiluni’s new
submissions manager at
In addition to work translated into English, we encourage a universal
interpretation, including though not limited to movement between and
within cultural fields and from signifier (code, symbol, signal) to
signified (message, meaning, transcription). Translation being inherent
in all acts of writing/reading, both semantic and non-verbal, we are
interested in short, non-academic essays relevant to such readings and
mis-readings. Please also send adaptations, definitions, conversions,
and homophonic translations. Text submissions should not exceed three
poems or short prose pieces, or some combination thereof, for a maximum
of three single-spaced pages in .doc or .rtf format.
For translations, include originals, permission status, and a bio for
the original author as well as your own. Translations from any language
are welcome. We look forward to reading or viewing your work.

> the theme of Animals in the City:
> "Squirrels, pigeons, cockroaches, bats, rats, hawks: these are a few
> of the animals that have adapted themselves to urban and suburban
> life. Skunks and raccoons have been seen walking city streets. Even
> bears raid city garbage cans in hard times. Song birds have adapted to
> the noise of the city by singing louder than their country kin. They
> make themselves heard over the semis and the sirens.
> "We are looking for poems, essays, stories, images, and multimedia
> works that deal with the city’s wildlife, both in harmony and in
> conflict with their human neighbors. But please don’t send us works
> explicitly about evil human predators. If humans inhabit your pieces,
> let it be in relationship to our cousins in the kingdom Animalia."
> As always, please use our submissions form (via Submittable) and be
