The Midwest Review (formerly Midwest Prairie Review), an annual literary and arts magazine published in Madison Wisconsin, is now accepting submissions for its fourth issue, which will premiere at the UW Writers’ Institute in Madison, April 15-17, 2016.
The magazine features the Midwest in work by writers, photographers and artists who live in, or have lived in, the Midwest (the region in the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley—according to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.
The editors are looking for thoughtful and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the wide spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwestern heartland. They are especially interested in new and emerging voices. They accept unsolicited submissions of original poetry, creative nonfiction, scripts, short stories, and visual art. Deadline: October 1, 2015.
Prose/Scripts: up to 5,000 words, double-spaced, Times New Roman or similar book typeface.
Poetry: 1-5 poems or 10 pp.
Photography/Art: 1-5 images
