Did you hear the news that Barn Owl Review is going to start publishing critical prose? We'll have 1-2 essays appear in the print issue, and others published on our website. All essays will be made available in pdf form, as well, so that we can share your thoughts with the widest possible readership. Here are the guidelines:
BARN OWL REVIEW--CRITICAL PROSE: Submit critical work (5,000 w. maximum) to the attention of Adam Deutsch, at submit at barnowlreview dot com. We're specifically interested in essays on craft and the writing life as well as explorations into the culture and larger contexts of creating art in the contemporary world. Though usually considered to be solely produced by academia, the ideas expressed in these pieces are not under the ownership of any educational institution. We encourage and welcome prose of the vocational academic as well as the blue-collar scholar and those guided by the production of art, regardless of the notions of tenure tracks, book sales, and/or the prevailing winds of fickle audiences.
We have now been open for 13 days, and have so far received 157 submissions. Wow! Thanks so much for your enthusiastic response, and if you're still thinking about sending work, don't delay. We hope to get our first round of acceptances out next week.
