Call for Submissions: Mizna Arab-American Literary Journal

Post date: Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Deadline: 16 July 2012

Mizna continuously seeks original writing for upcoming publications. The deadline for submitting work to be considered for the next issue is July 16, 2012. We welcome submissions on Arab-American themes that reflect the diversity of our community, and we are interested in work that surprises and challenges the reader. Contributors do not have to be of Arab descent provided their work is of relevance to the Arab-American community.

We prefer electronic submissions. If you would like your work to be considered for publication, please send your submission and a short biography (maximum 50 words) via e-mail as attachments (not in the body of the message) to, and include the word "submission" in the subject line. Please include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. The attachments should be standard word-processing program files.

Prose should be double-spaced and limited to 2500 words. Kindly limit poetry submissions to four poems per submission. Verses exceeding our page width will be treated with a runover indent. Proofs can be made available for author approval before publication.

Writers whose work is published in Mizna will receive a stipend and complimentary copies of the journal.

Due to the volume of submissions received, those not conforming to the above guidelines, as well as material previously published in any other English-language forum, will not be considered.
