Submissions :: Ecotone

Ecotone , the University of North Carolina at Wilmington’s national literary journal, has recently launched an online companion, which is currently seeking submissions for its current series, “Addiction as Ecotone.”

“We’re interested in exploring addictions (particularly their beginnings and, in some cases, their resolutions) as an ecotone—a transitional place separating past and present, reality and fantasy. We thus invite you to submit literary expressions you have related to this idea. Full submission guidelines here.”

Additionally, in Spring 2009, Ecotone will publish a special issue celebrating the bicentennial of Charles Darwin’s birth and the sesquicentennial of the publication of The Origin of Species. We are now accepting submissions in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for the Ecotone Evolution Contest, which will creatively reflect the subject of evolution.

The reading period is October 15, 2007 – April 15, 2008. One Grand Prize winner will receive a $1,000 honorarium, a limited-edition chapbook of the winning manuscript, and publication in Ecotone’s Spring 2009 “evolution” issue. Two runners-up will receive chapbooks of their manuscripts and publication in Ecotone. The contest entry fee is $15 per manuscript. Full contest guidelines here.
