Tidal Basin Review invites submissions on the related topics of image and beauty. Who determines standards of beauty? The dominant narrative/culture? How do we as a society disrupt this narrative? These are a few of the many questions that can be raised. Tidal Basin Review invites submissions of poems and prose, as well as, critical essays that investigate standards of beauty and/or explore beauty in new and exciting ways. As always, Tidal Basin Review wants to hear from America’s beautiful spectrum.
Tidal Basin Review will accept submissions for the Beauty & Image Call from October 1st to October 31st, 2011. Any submissions received after this deadline will not be considered and will be discarded. The standard response time is 2 (two) months.
Tidal Basin Review considers work, in English, which has not been previously published. Tidal Basin Press, Inc. acquires North American Serial Rights, First Electronic Rights, and Electronic Archival Rights. Publication rights revert back to the author upon publication of work in an issue of Tidal Basin Review.
