What's up for 2010...

I'm hoping to have the winter issue of blossombones up and running by Monday, at the latest. We'll be featuring Molly Gaudry's digital chapbook, Anatomy for the Artist.

I'm slogging along, moving slower than I plan (as always), so just in case I'm running a few days late (our new reading period begins on Monday, February 1st), I'd like to preview our latest call for submissions:

Call For Submissions: The Freud Issue

Open reading period: February 1st – April 30th

Blossombones is seeking submissions of poetry, short fiction and critical prose that represent a feminist or woman-centered response to the work of Sigmund Freud, with particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women.

We ask that women only submit work for the summer 2010 issue.

The Freud Issue will be guest-edited by Kristina Marie Darling.

Kristina Marie Darling is a graduate of Washington University. She's the author of several chapbooks, including Fevers and Clocks (March Street Press, 2006), The Traffic in Women (Dancing Girl Press, 2006), and Night Music (Blaze Vox Books, 2008). A two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, her writing appears or is forthcoming in issues of The Gettysburg Review, The Boston Review, Shenandoah, The Colorado Review, and other periodicals. Awards include residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Prairie Center of the Arts, as well as a scholarship from the Squaw Valley Community of Writers' annual poetry conference.

Please submit all work and queries regarding this specific issue of blossombones to KristinaMarieDarling (at) yahoo (dot) com

All other general queries regarding the journal may be sent to editor Susan Slaviero: susan.blossombones (at) gmail (dot) com

Our general guidelines still apply: simultaneous submissions are fine, no multiple subs during a single reading period, and please query our guest editor if you’re considering sending a longer piece. We expect a few longer pieces will be published in this issue, as we’re interested in critical as well as creative work.


The summer issue should go live sometime around July 1st. Don't forget to submit your work on or before April 30th.
