Emanations: A New Anthology Series Devoted to Fiction, Poetry, and Essays

(Image from Emanations)

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.

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."

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:

Submissions, of course, should be sent as attachments. We'll get back to you . . .

UPDATE: Mr. Kaplan has informed me that he has revised the call for submissions. See here.

Would the journal accept "concept haikus" in the Poetry section? (after translating them into English, of course). Something like philosophy + science fiction + metaliterature + very short stories, all of it in 5 and 7 and 5 syllables?

And, what about--- drawings?

I'm sure that haikus are acceptable. You'll need to ask Carter about drawings. I've heard nothing on that point.

"Concept haikus" . . . I like the sound of that.

Drawings are a possibility.... Scans of pen and ink might work best in the process. There will be a color cover, but illustrations will be b & w to keep costs down.
