"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Little Patuxent Review

Seeking Works that Witness Shape Shifting


Little Patuxent Review will accept submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and artwork for the Winter 2016 Myth issue.

Mythology both shapes and reflects culture—forming a bridge between individual and universal experience. How do you cross the bridge from past to present—or from individual to universal? How do you travel the mythic quality of life? LPR seeks works that witness shape shifting in micro and macro ways. Orhan Pamuk, winner of the 2006 Nobel prize in literature suggests: “The writer who shuts himself up in a room and goes on a journey inside will, over the years, discover literature’s eternal rule; he/she must have the artistry to tell their own stories as if they were other people’s stories, and to tell other people’s stories as their own…”

Submissions are open from August 1, 2015 to October 24, 2015.

Little Patuxent Review is a community-based publication focused on writers and artists from the Mid-Atlantic region, but all excellent work originating in the United States will be considered.

Although our issues are organized around themes, we allow considerable leeway in how contributors interpret them in order to ensure access to the broadest range of high-quality work.
