Journal of Writing & Environment

Theme for Spring 2011 Issue

Flyway: Journal of Writing and Environment is pleased to announce the theme for the Spring 2011 issue: Forgotten Places. For this issue, we’re looking for fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry dealing with marginalized environments. To marginalize is to relegate to an outer or lower edge, to label with decreased importance. So then, what’s a marginalized environment? We’re not telling you. It’s up to you to convince us through your writing. We’ve heard arguments for: the Rustbelt, the Everglades, abandoned fairgrounds, inner city playgrounds, war-torn towns, and much more! Be creative. Remember forgotten places—and write about them. Please indicate in your cover letter if you are submitting to this theme issue by using either “Forgotten Places” or “Marginalized Environments” somewhere in the cover letter. Deadline: March 31, 2011.
