CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
A Mosaic of Voices: Writers Explore Multiculturalism
The Bellevue Literary Review is seeking submissions of previously unpublished fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for an upcoming special issue on multiculturalism, to be published in Fall 2013.
Authors from Isaac Bashevis Singer to Jhumpa Lahiri have incorporated multicultural issues into their writing, challenging readers and their beliefs on the “other,” and at times aiding in its restoration as someone similarly complex in thought and belief as the “self.” As American culture becomes continually diversified, so must health care workers and professionals adjust to sensitive and difficult issues as they interact with a mosaic of ethnicities, religious beliefs, languages and customs. Being that Bellevue Hospital is the oldest public hospital in the United States and located in one of the most diverse cities in the world, it is only fitting that the magazine that originated here be a platform to facilitate discussion of health and medicine through a cross-cultural lens.
The Bellevue Literary Review seeks poetry and prose of the highest caliber that deal with the experiences and varied perspectives of multiculturalism, touching upon issues of the human body, health and healing. Primarily, we are looking for fresh writing that illuminates some aspect of humanity and human experience.
Poetry: Up to 3 poems per submission. Prose: up to 5000 words.
