Submit your unruly, ambitious best by November 15 to be considered for Loose Change 5.1 (Winter 2015), which will include work by Eric Baus, Laura Carter, Timothy Liu, Miranda Mellis, Keith Waldrop, and others.
We’re especially interested in submissions of innovative prose/essay/hybrid for the non-themed main section of the issue, and in all categories for our special portfolio:
We want work that interrogates, complicates, proliferates and differently embodies our culture’s overly simplistic, binaristic notions of sex/gender/desire (and if that happens to be in literary forms that complicate our too-easy division between fiction and poetry, all the better)
Calling All Literary and Visual Arts Editors
If you want to be a part of the excitement and help the new Loose Change grow, join our editorial team! We are now accepting letters of interest from talented and committed editors through our Submittable page. We are interested in publishing ambitious, progressive-minded, engaged and engaging work that comes out of various traditions and moves them forward, honoring by reinventing them or critiquing and exploding them. We want familiar modes made new and emergent forms that renew us. Other journals whose editorial vision we admire include American Letters & Commentary, Chicago Review, Conjunctions, Fence, Indiana Review, and jubilat, to name only a few.
If you’re a writer or experienced advocate of such work and would be excited to join our efforts, we would be delighted to receive your application for a position with our new editorial team. If you are an experienced creative writer and/or editor (or visual artist or arts curator) in Atlanta, and would be able to offer time and energy to reviewing and evaluating submissions, attend occasional meetings, and help contribute periodically to our Community/Events page with events listings, feature articles, interviews, and the like, we welcome your interest. As with the vast majority of literary journals, Loose Change is a labor of love, and we are unable to pay staff at this time.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled.
