Spring/Summer 2018 (41.2)-Unity

“One sky, toward which we sometimes lift our eyes
tired from work: some days guessing at the weather
of our lives, some days giving thanks for a love
that loves you back, sometimes praising a mother
who knew how to give, or forgiving a father
who couldn't give what you wanted.”


—“One Today” by Richard Blanco


For our next issue, we are reaching out for unity. Send us writing that brings us together, that speaks of healing, that continues to call for resistance. It can be a soft touch or a stern voice  that reminds us of the struggle, that challenges the injustice of our turbulent times, or what captures connection with our streets, towns, communities, and natural world. Take us past the inspirational poster quotes with your poetry, fiction, nonfiction, translations, experimental forms, or writing that speaks and welcomes us all.

Closes January 12, 2018.

Pilgrimage considers art submissions throughout the year. Please use Submittable to send print-ready images in high-resolution 300 DPI format with B&W print conversion in mind, if your images are in color. Each issue of Pilgrimage generally features a single artist's full color work on the front and back covers with additional interior B&W images. We prefer to have 6-8 images to consider, but you can submit with links to your work. We understand that many artists store images of their work on websites, and we are happy to consider your work from those links. Keep our upcoming themes in mind when you submit.
