We’re inviting submissions for the fall issue of BLIP, edited by Gary Percesepe and Sara Lippman. It is primarily a fiction issue, but if you happen to have a splendid essay, who knows? Click for details.
Selected by Gary Percesepe & Sara Lippmann
How do daily concessions affect us? How do we bear up under the weight of compromise? Those tiny adjustments we all make, even in our most intimate relationships, eventually accrue – but how, exactly? We’re looking for stories of accommodations we’ve known or made or imagined, and how they shape us.
As always when we read, we seek the problematic, the curious, the ill-fitting, the remarkable and the mundane, work that stays with us, which challenges our tastes and imaginations, our spirits. We thank you for sending your best work our way.
Word limit: 5,000
Deadline: September 15, 2010
