I found this call for submissions on Brevity, an online journal for brief creative nonfiction that I respect very much, and although I didn’t know Bluestem before, I must say that any journal asking to get more CNF submissions sounds attractive:

The editors of Bluestem are hungry for good writing. Our name is new, but our magazine is not. Formerly known as Karamu, Bluestem has been publishing continuously since 1966. Olga Abella, Professor of English at Eastern Illinois University, welcomes Roxane Gay and Lania Knight to the editing staff at Bluestem. With their assistance, Bluestem has moved into the digital age, launching an online quarterly in December 2010 in addition to the annual print magazine. To accommodate this growth, we need more submissions. Our creative nonfiction slush pile is painfully thin at the moment. Please send us an essay or two.

Our next online issue is March 2011, and our next print issue will be released in the Spring of 2011. As we move forward by introducing online offerings to the fine work we have always published, we are looking forward to working with new writers and reaching new readers. We are currently reading for the online issue as well as the 2012 print issue. Read some current selections online, peruse our guidelines, and send us something tasty!
