For our Spring 2019 issue, Michigan Quarterly Review seeks submissions on the theme of Iran — its literature, culture, and history, particularly perspectives on the 1979 revolution written in Iran or in the Diaspora. The issue, guest edited by Kathryn Babyan, seeks to present a collective of voices and reflections by a generation born in the shadow of revolution. We especially encourage translations from Persian, Kurdish, Armenian, and Azeri languages spoken in Iran.
Submit work for this issue through June 30, 2018. Complete submission guidelines are available here.
Prose submissions: 5,000 words maximum
Poetry submissions: 8 pages maximum
