NEW! SWAMP APE REVIEW (multi-genre)
Deadline: August 1
The legend of the Swamp Ape reflects Florida’s mythology and weirdness, as well as the human desire to create a narrative around the unexplainable. Swamp Ape Review explores this narrative in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, visual art, and “swamp”— works that defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Edited by the MFA students of Florida Atlantic University, Swamp Ape encourages pieces of hybrid or non-traditional nature that subvert our expectations of what is possible.
