580 Split is seeking

poetry, and visual art. Experimental work, international writers, and
marginalized perspectives are highly encouraged.
THEMATIC DESCRIPTION: obsession
writers and artists, we may best understand the moment when an initial
interest teeters and tips over to a full-blown obsession. In many cases
it is not something we see coming, much less something we can control.
Standing outside of reason, obsession seems to be one of the main forces
that drives artistic creation. We are looking for work that inquires
into, is inspired by, or speaks directly to our theme.
We use Submittable to manage all submissions. Please do not send any submissions via mail or email: they will not be considered.
not submit previously published work. We accept simultaneous
submissions, however, please notify us immediately upon acceptance of
your work elsewhere via the Submission Manager. All rights revert to
the author(s) upon publication. Include your contact information in the
separate box on the Submissions page. Please do not include contact
information (name, address, etc.) in the file of your work.
Unfortunately we cannot pay you for your work, but those accepted for
publication will receive a free copy of the journal.
