Big Muddy: A Journal of the Mississippi River Valley
From the Editor:
An 8.5 x 5.5 perfectbound, color-cover, semi-annual publication that explores multidisciplinary issues and events concerning the 10-state area that borders the Mississippi River, from the United States/Canadian border to Louisiana’s Gulf Coast Big Muddy addresses a number of topics, including: history, creative nonfiction essays, political science, poetry, fiction, biography, environmental sciences, industry/business, photography, music, art, regional events.
We encourage submissions that are interdisciplinary in approach. Topics related to the Mississippi River Valley are encouraged and given preference, though a direct relation to the area is not necessary. We especially like nonfiction pieces, though we do publish poetry and fiction as well.
