Queering Americana / Calls & Submissions

August 31, 2022

Organization Name: the museum of americana

Organization Location: Online

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


“Queering Americana,” work that queers the focus and perception of traditional Americana. For our August (1-31) submission period we are particularly interested in works from queer folks, especially queer BIPOC. We are also interested in reading submissions from non queer identifying folks whose work somehow still queers Americana.

The museum of americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art that examines, revives, or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana.

We seek work that engages with or repurposes the complex cultural history of America. We are particularly interested in work from writers, artists, and musicians who are traditionally marginalized from publishing. Artist Juliana Rico will be serving as the guest juror for Issue 28.

Art submission guidelines:
-A maximum of 10 images per artist or groups.
-Images should be web-ready with a minimum of 72 DPI and saved with the title of works and artist’s name. For videos and large files please include a link to where the work can be viewed online.
-In the body of the email (not as an attachment), include a short work statement that speaks directly to the current issue’s theme, a short bio, and details for each image in the following format:
Title, Year, Medium/Media, Dimensions, and Image Credit (if applicable)
-Original works only, all mediums are welcome. Artists who are traditionally marginalized from publishing are encouraged to submit.
