Deadline: January 15, 2008 (not a postmark deadline; no e-mail submissions)


nocturnes (re)view, a journal committed to publishing quality innovative (experimental/avant-garde) critical and creative art from throughout the African Diaspora and other contested spaces, seeks work for its 5th anniversary issue, �Divination.�


Many divination systems are encoded in or reveal their wisdom through verse, charts, diagrams, or other art forms. Whether it is by throwing bones, dominoes, or dice, work for this issue should consider the formal or ritual aspect of Divination more so than simple fortune-telling. Submissions connected to or inspired by the Ifa Oracle, Tibetan M�, Tarot, Tea Leaves, Palmistry, Scrying, the Ling Qi Jing, Numerology, Runes, Dowsing, Bibliomancy, or other such systems will be of primary interest. Work may also take a general approach to the �Divine� as a larger quest for understanding.


nocturnes (re)view warmly welcomes hybrid-genre work as well as poetry (a minimum of 5-7 poems/pages), essays and non-fiction (up to 3,000 words), prose and fiction (up to 3,000 words), visual art (b/w), reviews (up to 500 words), drama, comics, performance texts, interviews, etc.


Submission Guidelines (please read carefully)


Send previously unpublished work and cover letter on disk or CD in MS Word with one (1) typed/printed copy and a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage should you want your work returned. Visual work should be scanned (300 DPI or higher) and submitted on disk or CD in .tif or .jpg format. Translations should be accompanied by original language texts. All submissions MUST include a cover letter (on disk/CD and hard-copy) with:
