      Call for Chapbook Manuscripts (Poetry and Mixed-Genre): Postmark May 1,
      2011


      Housed in the Department of English at The University of Alabama, SLASH
      PINE PRESS locates itself in an intellectual space where forms and
      intuitions make writing a process of risk and otherness—a space where
      the high stakes of creative inquiry make self-effacement impossible.
      Slash Pine fosters work that investigates the dimensions of place,
      whether construed as location or situation. Such work is, like the
      slash pine itself, able to survive in swamps and sandhills, to thrive
      in salt and heat, to occupy an imaginative landscape that is raw and
      abrasive, and to expand its territory toward the interior. Neither
      cynical nor rhetorically meek, the work is concerned with but not
      limited by the map; its logic is global, written against the grain of
      history and biography. And where there is a cut, a thick sap flows.


      Guidelines:

      Deadline: Postmark by May 1, 2011.

      Multiple submissions are acceptable; so are simultaneous submissions,
      but please notify us if manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

      Include two copies of manuscript with two title pages; one with title
      only; one with title, author’s name, and full contact information.

      Manuscripts should be no longer than 24 pages and be either poetry or
      mixed-genre.

      No more than one poem or mixed-genre piece per page, please. No
      electronic submissions.

      Do not send SASE. Manuscripts will be recycled.

      All manuscripts receive a blind reading.

      Faculty, students, and graduates of The University of Alabama are not
      eligible for publication.

      Reviewers: francine j. harris, Nathan Hauke, Abraham Smith, Patti
      White, Joseph P. Wood
