Segue, the online literary journal of Miami University-Middletown, is accepting creative and scholarly work for its fall 2008 issue.
Segue‘s dual mission is to serve as a high quality literary publication and an educational venue for writing instructors and students of writing. In addition to publishing an eclectic blend of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction from around the globe, each issue features a well-established author who publishes a small body of new/forthcoming work along with an essay that explores the writing process behind their submission. Past Featured Authors include Brenda Miller, Terese Svoboda, Lex Williford, Diane Glancy, Denise Duhamel, and others. Further, our peer-reviewed Writing on Writing (WoW) page publishes nonfiction on a wide range of creative writing-related issues for educational use, and our Author Q&A page posts email interviews conducted by writing students with selected authors published in Segue.
Submissions are open to anyone outside of Miami University. The WoW page is an especially valuable resource for instructors (including graduate students) to use and/or publish in. Possible topics for the WoW page include, but are not limited to:
Creative writing pedagogy (we’re especially interested in this)
The state of creative writing in academia
Creative writing in academia v. the alleged “real world”
The craft/process of writing fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction
Creative writing exercises (with explanations of their origin,
purpose, and if possible, examples of completed exercises)
Close readings of the literary works of established authors, with
an eye toward illuminating something interesting in the work
Interviews with established authors
The business side of creative writing
The writing life
Complete details on all the above, submission guidelines, and past issues are freely available on Segue‘s web site.
