Emanations: A New Anthology Series Devoted to Fiction, Poetry, and Essays
My cyber-friend Carter Kaplan -- author of the novel Tally-Ho, Cornelius! -- has founded a new literary journal, Emanations, and since I'm on the "Board of Editorial Advisors," I'm duty-bound to do my part in promoting this journal. It's described as:
"A New Anthology Series Devoted to Fiction, Poetry, and Essays"And here's the call for submissions:
The editors of Emanations seek fiction, poetry, essays, manifestos and reviews. The emphasis is on alternative narrative structures, new epistemologies, peculiar settings, esoteric themes, sharp breaks from reality, ecstatic revelations, and vivid and abundant hallucinations.If you feel that you have literary talent or literary-critical insights and have written something original, daring, or possibly ecstatic, then do as advised, namely, send Microsoft Word files in Times New Roman, 12-point font (tabs set for three spaces) along with a brief cover note to Carter Kaplan:
The editors believe that recognizable genres are fit points of departure -- science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, local color, romance, realism, surrealism, postmodernism -- but the idea behind the idea is the thing, just as the magician behind the magician is . . . the magician. In other words, Emanations seeks to say something new, but the illusion of something new can be just as important. Essays should be exuberant, daring, and free of pedantry. Length is a consideration in making publication decisions, but in keeping with the spirit of the project contributors should consider length to be "open."
