Anamesa (Due: 2/24/2013)

Spring 2013
blur boundaries, re-imagine links, explore the between

Anamesa, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal of graduate student writing and art based at New York University, is now accepting submissions for its Spring 2013 print issue. Current and recent graduate students across all disciplines are encouraged to send in their writing-including but not limited to academic essays, creative non-fiction, reportage, interviews, reviews, short stories, and poetry-and visual art of any sort, keeping in mind that the journal is a printed publication. Anamesa considers material from a variety of subject matters and selects creative, intelligent works that reflect the transdisciplinary nature of the graduate community.


Works of writing should be 6000 words or less. Nonfiction works must include an abstract of 200 words or less. Academic papers must adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style. All submissions are blind-reviewed so there should be no author-identifying information in the text of the written work, although author’s contact information should be included in the cover sheet as detailed below. Although the publication will be in English, we are also interested in texts in translation.

Visual art submissions must be in digital format with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI and minimum size of 5 x 7 inches.

The submission deadline is Sunday, February 24.

Send submissions and inquiries to Please include a cover page with your name, departmental affiliation, expected degree and date, telephone number, and email address (this can be in the body of your email). We accept multiple submissions, but we ask that you place each submission in a different email message.
All submissions should be emailed with the subject heading listing the relevant genre (e.g., “nonfiction,” “fiction,” “poetry,” or “art”).

This semester we are also looking to enhance our launch night, and art display at Think Coffee at Mercer place, by NYU. Please indicate if you would be interested in either reading (or having your work read) at this event, or in having your Art displayed (and potentially sold!) through April/May leading up to this event.
