Edited by Nikoleta Zampaki,

PhD Candidate of Modern Greek Philology, NKUA, Greece

The Green Theory and Praxis Journal (http://greentheoryandpraxisjournal.org/) is calling for proposals exploring the entanglements of COVID – 19 into creative forms of writing (poetry, fiction etc.). We seek work that advocates for changed paradigms, challenges new thinking, and above all, encourages us to reimagine our future.

Poetry Submit up to three previously unpublished poems in any style. Poems may be single-spaced and should use a standard font. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as GTPJ is notified if your work is accepted elsewhere. Email your submission as a .doc or .docx file.

Fiction Submit up to three flash stories (1000 words or less) or microfiction (300 words or less) in any genre. Or, submit one story in any genre of up to 5000 words. Stories should be double-spaced and use a standard font. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as GTPJ is notified if your work is accepted elsewhere. Email your submission as a .doc or .docx file.

Creative Nonfiction Submit up to three lyric or micro essays (750 words or less). Or, submit one essay of up to 5000 words. Essays should be double-spaced and use a standard font.

Art & Photography Submit up to five individual pieces of artwork or five individual photographs. Or, submit a photo essay that includes text and image.

For photo essays, send one PDF file with images and text in appropriate order. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as GTPJ is notified if your work is accepted elsewhere.
