Sin Fronteras Journal Issue #23 is Out

Leave a comment

SF 23 coverSin Fronteras/Writers Without Borders Issue #23 has just arrived from the printer.  It features the work of 48 contributors, mostly poets.  Six are from southern New Mexico, seven from other parts of the state, a few more from the greater southwest.  Others are from all over the country, from Washington State to Massachusetts to Florida, and three live beyond our nation’s borders.

Some poems speak directly to southern border issues.  Others focus on different kinds of borders: between people, their communication and miscommunication, or between people and wildlife, or people and their pasts.  The editors were pleased to have a rich mix to draw from.

The cover art is by Deret Roberts, local artist and gallery owner.  You can learn more about his gallery at www.artobscuragallery,com.

If you’d like to obtain a copy of this issue, or submit for the next annual issue, go to the Journal’s own website: http://www.sinfronterasjournal.com.  Be sure to check the guidelines and notice that submissions sent to the email address before April 1 will not be read.

1 Comment

Sin Fronteras/Writers Without Borders Journal now has its own website.  The Journal is now accepting submissions for next spring’s issue, #18.  The details can be found at: http://sinfronterasjournal.com/submissions/

Sin Fronteras Journal is published in Las Cruces, New Mexico, forty miles from the border and very much within a border mentality.  While we are interested in featuring border writers and writing about the border, we are not limited to that concept.  Send some of your best work according to the instructions at the site listed above.

Yes, we are still asking for snail mail submissions.  With seventeen years of tradition behind us we are moving into the twenty-first century one step at a time.
