WHISKEY TRAVELER:  a 21st  Century literary collective

Focuses on new age experimental writing with an eye for social commentary, traveling, somatic poetics, eco poetry, and writing with a goal for social justice and most particularly writing that gives voice to voiceless communities or places underrepresented/stereotyped/cast aside/or unknown.

Seeks to publish new age writers that haven’t been or are under published.  Publishes those who hold promise in writing on the times/human experience in an original new way.  Whiskey Traveler wants writers who crave a knack for poignant new perspectives in their text, allowing for social awareness/new critical thought/strong emotional experiences told in a fascinating way.

Accepts short stories of Fiction/Non-Fiction, Prose & Poetry & Hybrid Text forms.  These can include narrative text w/ elements of real & surrealist notions, works of  dada, Oilipou, New Narrative, Literary Journalism and of course variety of multi mixed forms/other.  Interested in experimentation in the work.

The Literary collection focuses on publishing a diverse array of work and anyone is welcome to submit.  The collection accepts writing and art from both men & women, people of all ages w/out discretion of background/ “race”/religious view/and as ect./ we are all human beings.  People discriminated against or of a frame of dichotomy are encouraged to submit.  The journal seeks works that transgress boundaries.

What we look for:  The writing invokes attitude, feeling, understanding & showcases our time as well as the potency of the human heart & mind in its unveiling. Outlaws welcome.

Art submissions will be accepted and added throughout the collection to help support both the visual artistic & tie to art in writing/coalesce the publication.

The publication will be annually possibly bi-annually overtime. Please send up to 6 works and  a short bio of yourself  to bpetty@students.naropa.edu

Deadline  Jan 31st .
