○ Minnesota Review


○ Gruene Street

GRUENE STREET: An Internet journal of poetry and prose invites submissions of prose (750–3500 words) and poetry (under 60 lines) for its premiere issue to appear late Summer/early Fall 1995. The editors of GRUENE STREET seek to provide an outlet for high-quality work that merits a sophisticated on-line audience, hoping to publish writing that at least aspires to the quality of work that appears in literary journals such as Kansas Quarterly, Cimmaron Review, Prairie Schooner, etc.—providing an alternative to the ‘zines and zine-like publications that seem to dominate the net.

GRUENE STREET accepts multiple and simultaneous submissions as well as previously-published work.

**** Submission Guidelines in Brief ****

FICTION no obvious genre-fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, romance, etc.) Excerpted novels OK. See poetry.
POETRY no real form/content limitations (except length). Please, no *gratuitous* sex/violence with no other purpose but shock value—if your attempting some sort of poetic rendition of Oliver Stone’s open to almost anything if it’s well done.
ESSAYS open to a variety subjects that might be of interest to a general/academic audience including education (i.e. critical pedagogy, reform), literary and cultural studies, non-sectarian political perspectives, liberation theology, postmodern/postcolonial as long as it is somewhat accessible and not caught up in its own cleverness, has *something* to say etc.++

We have a particular interest in publishing well-written essays (including analytical book reviews) and anticipate receiving far more fiction/poetry than non-fiction—so if in doubt, give us a try.

SUBMIT manuscripts via e-mail to editors at in ASCII text or HTML format. If your work is already somewhere on the WWW (such as your home page) send your URL. For more detailed info contact the editors at AFF@TENET.EDU or check out our home page on the World Wide Web:
