GENERAL SUBMISSIONS INFORMATION

We do accept simultaneous submissions, but we ask that you contact us as soon as your work has been accepted elsewhere.
Writers whose work is published in Mizna will receive an honorarium, a one-year subscription to the journal, and complimentary copies of the journal.
Due to the volume of submissions received, those not conforming to the above guidelines, as well as material previously published in any other English-language forum, will not be considered.
Winter 2015 Themed Issue: In this issue of Mizna, we will examine where different forms of oppression meet. Originally the term “intersectionality” was coined by law professor K. Crenshaw to address the ways in which black women have faced a particular kind of oppression due to the intersection of race and gender.
We are asking you to share with us your stories, essays, and poems that reflect your own experiences or analysis of intersectionality of race, gender, class, religion, ethnicity, etc.
