October 2014 (Fall) -- Sports, Guest Editor: Daniel Cruz
Future issues on the themes of travel, social justice, and more new drama are underway. We are always interested in finding established writing groups to feature (see past issues edited by a writer's group from First Mennonite Church in Indianapolis and the Virginia Inkslingers). We are also interested in writers from diverse racial and ethnic background, in international writing, and in writing that explores constructions of gender. Send queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
For news updates, like the Center for Mennonite Writing on Facebook.
Calls for Submissions:
Our mission is to publish work about Mennonite literature or literature by writers who have a connetion with Mennonite (in the broad sense of the term) faith and culture. Electronic submission only to email@example.com. Include a brief bio that mentions your interest in or connection to Mennonites, and attach the submission as a word document. If you wish to submit poetry, fiction, or short creative nonfiction, please inquire first, as sometimes we will add a poetry feature or other special features to include creative submissions. We also welcome suggestions for future topics, since themes for issues are planned over a year in advance. If you have a writing group that would like to create a special issue of the Journal of CMW, we would also like to hear from you. Send all queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
