Call for submissions for JAAM 27

JAAM 27 (2009) will be edited by writer Ingrid Horrocks, who currently teaches creative writing at Massey University in Wellington.

The theme for this issue is 'wandering'. As well as work that features literal wanderers and travellers (a mainstay of New Zealand literature) we're also interested work that wanders - works that digress in creative ways from narrative, argument, or genre. Wandering fiction, poetry, and especially, creative nonfiction, should be sent to Ingrid by the end of March 2009 at jaammagazine@yahoo.co.nz or PO Box 25239, Panama Street, Wellington 6146. As always, this issue of JAAM will also be open to general submissions, which should be sent in by the same date. For more information on JAAM see http://www.myspace.com/jaammagazine.

JAAM 27 will be published in the second half of 2009.

I'm on record as liking unthemed rather than themed issues of magazines, but I have to say that I like this theme a lot, and it's broad enough to encompass many different types of work. And, naturally, I like the idea of works that digress in creative ways from genre. JAAM forges ahead again!

There is certainly a lot of scope in this theme - it can be subject or form or whatever. I think it will make for another really interesting issue.

Also though, do note that 'unthemed' work is also welcome for JAAM 27.
