Calls for Submissions:

Our mission is to publish work about Mennonite literature or literature by writers who have a connection with Mennonite (in the broad sense of the term) faith and culture.

How to submit: Electronic submission only to cmw@goshen.edu. Include a brief bio that mentions your interest in or connection to Mennonites, and attach the submission as a word document.

If you wish to submit poetry, fiction, or short creative nonfiction, please inquire first, as sometimes we will add a poetry feature or other special features to include creative submissions. We also welcome suggestions for future topics, since themes for issues are planned over a year in advance.

Send all queries to cmw@goshen.edu.
