Whitefish Review Taking Submissions Until Oct. 1

By Beacon Staff

Submissions for Whitefish Review’s winter 2014 issue are now being reviewed in art, photography, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

Cristina Eisenberg will serve as the lead editor for the 16th issue, “The Geography of Hope.”

Eisenberg is an ecologist, writer, and nonfiction editor of Whitefish Review. Her most recent book is “The Carnivore Way: Coexisting with and Conserving North America’s Predators.”

The Review editors seek stories that speak to the wilderness within us and the hope we can draw from wild places. Geography conjures images of maps, including maps of places that remain mysterious and not fully explored.

“We also envision this as a richly visual issue for our artists and photographers to tackle, with maps created as part of a community art project,” said Brian Schott, founding editor. “While there are many sides of hope that we wish to explore, this theme provides a forum to create maps that can help us find our way into a better future for ourselves and our children.”

Editors are also currently seeking submissions for Whitefish Review’s Montana Prize for Fiction. First place winner of the fiction prize will receive $1,000 and be published in issue No. 16. Runners-up and finalists may also be considered for publication. Author Rick Bass will serve as the judge for this prize.

The deadline for submissions for the fiction prize is September 15 and there is a $15 fee to submit. Submissions for the Geography of Hope issue do not carry a fee and are accepted through Oct. 1. All submissions are accepted via an online submission manager at www.WhitefishReview.org. For full guidelines, visit the website.
