Call for Submissions: Court Green

Dossier: The 1970s

Each issue of COURT GREEN features a dossier on a special topic or theme. For our seventh issue, we will feature a dossier on The 1970s.

We would like to see poems on all that decade entailed, as well as the legacy thereof. We are as interested in poems that invoke the icons of and engage with the stereotypes of the 1970s as we are in poems that explore more tangential or atypical aspects of the decade. Poems of all styles and modes -- historical, personal, political, confessional, formal, experimental, regional, global, nostalgic, critical, hybrid, and especially those styles and modes the editors have not yet foreseen -- are welcome. We are not looking for critical/academic works at this time.

Submissions for dossier and regular sections of the magazine are welcome.

If you would like to submit poems for either or both sections, our submission period is March 1-June 30 of each year.

We do not accept more than one submission per poet during our submission/reading period. Please note that we do not accept more than five pages of poetry.

Email submissions are not accepted. Please supply a SASE for notification only. Submissions will not be returned. Poems submitted outside our reading period will be returned unread.

We will respond by August 31.

Submit to:

English Department
Columbia College Chicago
600 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605

Please note: Poems sent through submissions services are discouraged and may be returned unread. We strongly encourage anyone interested in submitting to COURT GREEN to read a recent issue of the magazine before submitting.
