If you’re a writer from the Midwest, or who writes about the region, take note. the museum of americana has announced it will publish a special Midwest-themed issue. The online review, which features Americana-themed prose, poetry and art, will produce the issue in conjunction with Quiddity International Literary Journal. The collaborative project will comprise the museum of americana Issue Five, scheduled to appear in late January 2014.
As Justin Hamm, founding editor of the museum of americana, explains, “In the past the label regionalism has been seen as a dismissal of sorts, but of late there has been a movement to reclaim the moniker with pride. We are looking for fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art/photography from writers/artists who self-identify as Midwestern and whose work engages with Midwestern regional themes, traditional and contemporary.”
Submissions will be accepted from November 15 to December 31st.
