Copper Nickel, a journal of art and literature published by the students and faculty of the University of Colorado Denver, asks for submissions of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and cross-genre works for a special issue on Women Writing in the West.
Any woman who has lived in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Washington, Utah, or Wyoming in the last five years or who takes the region as her subject is eligible for consideration. Writers need not be natives, nor need the work be "western" in theme or nature.
To submit, collect up to five poems and/or two pieces of prose in one MS Word document (.doc) and e-mail the document as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include complete contact information (address, e-mail, and phone) and any pertinent biographical details and please indicate if yours is a simultaneous submission. Traditional post submissions not accepted
Deadline: April 15, 2008
