Call for Journal Submissions
Confluence is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting submissions for the second volume of our print journal Voices of the River! Voices of the River is a journal that explores the history, living cultures, and ecology of the Columbia River system through Indigenous voices. Some potential themes include (and are not limited to) Growth, Healing, and Community.
Deadline: March 15th, 2023.
Voices from the River is an accessible publication of stories, research papers, poetry and art that elevate Indigenous perspectives in our understanding of our region and our nation. This journal is an extension of the work Confluence does in public gatherings, education programs in schools, and our Digital Library that already features interviews, documentary shorts, photo galleries, and research papers on these subject managers exclusively from an Indigenous perspective. You can read a few examples here or buy a full copy here.
Our priority is material that advances our mission to connect people with the history, living cultures, and ecology of the Columbia River system through Indigenous voices. These pieces can take the form of artwork (this could be an art print or a photo of a carving for example, which would be paired with a short artists interview we would do with you) academic research, creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry, or personal essays. Those should be written with a public audience in mind. Some potential themes include (and are not limited to) Growth, Healing, and Community.
If you are interested in providing a piece for the library, please submit your piece via the submission form (found at this link.
