Northern New Mexico College Literary Journal “Trickster” Calls For Submissions For 2020 Issue

Española, NM – Northern New Mexico College’s literary Journal “Trickster” is now seeking submissions for its upcoming 2020 issue.

Contributors are encouraged to submit unpublished poetry, fiction, nonfiction, artwork, or a combination of these on the theme of “borders.”

“From the time we are born to the time we draw our last breath, we spend our lives crossing borders or being limited or blocked by them,” the Trickster editorial committee writes. “We invite you to explore the theme of borders, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, and are waiting to celebrate your talent!”

Prose submissions should not exceed 5,000 words, and poetry submissions should be limited to 3-5 poems. Multiple submissions should be attached as one document, and documents should be submitted as either .doc or .rtf files. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please inform the committee if work is accepted elsewhere.

The editors read all submissions anonymously, but contributors will be recognized if selected, and receive a free copy of the journal. Contributors should also include a 50-word bio. Please send submissions to prior to February 14, 2020.

Northern’s Department of Language and Letters released the first issue of “Trickster” in 2015, making the 2020 edition the fifth annual publication. The perspective of the journal is shaped by the landscape and cultures of northern New Mexico, but especially welcomes original work on the current theme. Submissions for Trickster are reviewed and selected by student editors with the guidance of faculty advisors. Publication of the journal is supported entirely by sales and community fundraising.
