Seeking Nonfiction and Translations
Consequence has a rich tradition of publishing engaging translations and nonfiction, including Richard Hoffman’s 2022 Pushcart-winning essay “Remembering the Alchemists.” We look to strengthen this tradition in both our Spring ’22 print volume and our online platform, so if you have exceptional work in either of these genres, please send them to us via consequenceforum.org/submissions. Deadline: October 15, 2021.

Also, don’t forget to check out the visual art series “I’m An Animal” by River LaMer for some stirring food for thought.
Consequence will open to submissions again on July 15! They are particularly interested in nonfiction and translations, but would love to receive any quality work centered on “the human consequences and realities of war or geopolitical conflict.”
