Clamantis Submissions Due

October 16

Interested in submitting a piece of writing or artwork to the Fall edition of Clamantis: The MALS Journal? We are accepting submissions for the Fall/winter edition of Clamantis until October 16, 2020.

The theme of this edition is identity and belonging. We are looking for submissions that confront, describe, investigate, or reflect on this theme in some way. We chose this theme because of the impact of the pandemic and the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, but we encourage you to approach it in a way that is personally relevant to you.

We publish pieces in the following genres:

-Creative Writing (fiction, non-fiction, essays, poetry, oral history, screenwriting)

-Interdisciplinary critical essays
