In celebration of the just-released Rose Metal Press’ Family Resemblance: An Anthology and Exploration of 8 Hybrid Literary Genres, we have extended our deadline for Hybrid submissions to January 1st!
The Bellingham Review defines a hybrid work as one which possesses more than one meaning-making mode (language, genre, art, anything visual, and/or surprise us!), in which each mode in some sense exerts a force and changes the other. Ander Monson writes, that “a hybrid is a thing that’s not entirely comfortable with the container it’s placed in.”* We are not looking for merely illustrated or decorated text. We expect that the different modes in a hybrid work will interact with one another to create something really new.
We have no limitations on form or subject matter, though we ask that you familiarize yourself with our journal and our aesthetic before you submit. Please see our Complete Guidelines or our Submittable page for more information.
