CALL FOR PAPERS : Voices from the PrairieQuarterly Fall 2021 Issue “Graveled Roads & Resilience”
The Humanities Iowa literary magazine titled Voices from the Prairie (now published quarterly) will highlight in Fall 2021 the theme of “Graveled Roads & Resilience.” This upcoming issue will explore the measured landscape of Iowa with its surveyed square miles of graveled roads as contrasted with the resiliency of the tall grass prairie. Logos & pathos. Rigid grids and wild creativity remain overlooked but complex, contemplative examples of landscape and the prairie personality, and certainly this past year has lent itself to personal transformation and reflection. Toughness, survival, movement, change, growth. This issue’s theme will recognize the longevity of the prairie with various voices that respectfully resonate from this natural and social landscape. This quarterly issue will highlight original essays, poetry, short stories, vignettes, sonnets, photographs, and illustrations—even garden designs and recipes--related to this theme within the many and varied aspects of Iowa and Midwestern humanities. Please send proposed submissions by the deadline of Wednesday, September 8, 2021, to the Executive Editor, Dr. Lisa Ossian, in a Word attachment for poetry & prose; jpg and/or pdf for photographs/illustrations to the following address: lisa-ossian@uiowa.edu The Winter Issue 2022 will carry a very different theme of crime and legend as well as outmigration and abandonment titled “Ghosts & Ghost Towns.” Please begin to consider submissions for that quarterly issue as well.
