Yellow Medicine Review's spring 2009 issue guest edited by Jimmy Santiago Baca looking for submissions

Submission Deadline: FEBRUARY 15, 2009

For the Spring 2009 issue of Yellow Medicine Review, guest editor Jimmy Santiago Baca is interested in submissions from Indigenous writers and scholars that speak to one of two themes:

1) Explorations of Learning & Teaching Experiences

Entries in all genres considered (poetry, prose, journal, letters, etc.), especially in regards to the experiences we've had in learning how to live; learning from elders and kids and nature and books and the Creator.

2) Endangerment of Civil Liberties

Works giving voice to infringement upon or violation of our civil liberties; experiences where we've had our civil liberties cut from our lives--cameras everywhere, law enforcement officers conducting themselves like paramilitary goons, our emails and telephone calls being intercepted by Homeland Security, etc. A huge change took place under the Bush watch and we poets and writers have suffered the worst of its assault. We'd like to see what's going on out there, especially since so many poets and writers of color have remained silent because of fear of having their cultural and governmental acceptance-card recalled....
