|Information about your publication:
||Isotope is a twice-yearly publication of nonfiction, fiction, poetry and artwork.
|What type of submissions you are looking for:
||We are interested in lyric and short narrative essays, short stories, microfiction, prose poems, poetry and artwork that engages in and meditates on the varied complex relationships among the human and non-human worlds, with a special interest in moving beyond merely laudatory descriptions of natural beauty and elegies on loss of the same. We are interested in “the beauty of things”—-to use Robinson Jeffers’s phrase—-but seek to complicate typical modes of nature writing with a wide range of emotion and subject. We are especially interested in work engaging fields, subjects and concerns that move beyond traditional nature writing—-including urban ecosystems, astronomy, physics, chaos theory, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, restoration ecology, earth sciences, cartography, sexuality, medicine and the body.
