Echtrai Journal: call for submissions

8th February 2024

Echtrai Journal have issued an open call for submissions to their 4th edition, Spring / Summer 2024. Submissions are open until 1st March.

Echtrai is a journal of writing and visual art, dedicated to bringing together the work of a diverse cross-section of writers and artists with an interest in landscapes lost, abandoned, forgotten, & mythic. They outline:

‘Written works will include a wide variety of essays, poetry, poetic prose, short fiction, experimental hybrids, academic papers, and republished works on a bi-annual basis. We are also looking for unique and interesting visual works in the form of art and photography, relating to marginalised landscapes.

We are interested in writing about place, landscape, and lore, informed by mythic imaginaries and a resolutely ecological sensibility. We call for work which is experimental, magical and incantatory and which resists the clichés and banalities of ‘place-writing’. We are interested in the multiple and complex relations with spaces, but also in new iterations and intimations of our ecological futures and radically new versions of, and revisits to the past.’
