"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

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 Collateral: Work Concerned with Impact of Military Service

COLLATERAL

Poetry, Prose and Art on the Impact of Military Service

Submissions accepted year-round.

 

Collateral is an online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington Tacoma. We publish poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual arts concerned with the impact of military service beyond the combat zone. The voices of those more indirectly impacted by war sometimes go unheard, and our journal seeks to capture the “collateral” impact of military service in all its forms. We publish work by veterans, reserve/active duty soldiers, and civilians every May and November; we accept submissions year-round through our website. Send up to 5 poems, 3,000 words of prose, or 7 images.

Friday Call for Submissions Love: Brand New Mag: Collateral

Collateral Literary Journal—New Military Themed Magazine
Submissions accepted year-round.

Collateral is a new online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington, Tacoma. We showcase high quality creative writing and art that explores the impact of the military and military service on the lives of people beyond the active service person. These voices sometimes go unheard, and this journal captures the “collateral” impact of military service, whether it is from the perspective of the partner or child; parent or sibling; friend or co-worker; veteran, refugee, or protester. Our editorial vision is to be as inclusive as possible and ideologically diverse. We encourage submissions from professional and emerging writers.

From their About page: 

 

MISSION STATEMENT:
Collateral explores the perspectives of those whose lives are touched indirectly by the realities of military service. Numerous journals already showcase war literature, but we provide a creative platform that highlights the experiences of those who exist in the space around military personnel and the combat experience. We feel these voices sometimes go unheard, and this journal captures the “collateral” impact of military service, whether it is from the perspective of the partner or child; the parent or sibling; the friend or co-worker; or the elderly veteran, the refugee, or the protester. In any issue, you might find the haiku of a seven-year old girl whose father is in Afghanistan alongside the short story of an award-winning fiction writer. Or the first-person essay of a military spouse alongside the critical essay of an academic.

Our editorial vision is to be as inclusive as possible and ideologically diverse. We encourage submissions from professional and emerging writers alike. Regardless of authorship, we are committed to publishing high-quality fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art that speaks authentically about the collateral impact of military service.
