Margin proudly announces a new special theme for the Spring 2006 edition:

Magical Realism from the Subcontinent

Our goal at MARGIN is to explore modern magical realism. In this third in a series of special theme issues, we will address the diversity of voices from the subcontinent of India, celebrating their particular manifestations of literary magical realism.

Margin's Indian exploration will be launched in June 2006.

Contributors need not currently live in the region, nor does the work necessarily need to be set there. We welcome work from the broad diaspora of Indian writers. If we decide to use your work we will ask for you to share with us your connection to the peninsula (through family ties, cultural upbringing, residency), and you must be willing and able to authenticate it. We are interested specifically in anything that serves to answer the question, "What is magical realism from India?" See website for detailed guidelines.

How To Submit
We accept submissions either via e-mail or surface mail.

Send electronic submissions, putting the words "Passages to India" in the subject line, here. We will not open attachments. Please do not send attachments, but embed the text of your electronic submissions into the body of your e-mail. Leave format coding out, if possible. We can discuss that after acceptance. If your e-mail address becomes invalid, we cannot be held responsible for failure to reply. Do not send URLs; we simply don't have time to navigate entire sites looking for manuscripts.

Send surface mail submissions to:

If you have any questions about this special theme, don't hesitate to ask!
