New Online Literary Journal Seeking Submissions

Feb. 4, 2014

Columbia College Chicago's Creative Writing Department is launching a new online literary journal, Goreyesque, and is seeking submissions.

The journal will feature work inspired by Edward Gorey, whose books were noted for their dark, humorous and surreal illustrations. Goreyesque welcomes submissions of short stories, poems, essays, illustrations, video, animation and more.

The online journal's launch coincides with the Loyola University's Museum of Art exhibition of Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey and G is for Gorey--C is for Chicago: The Collection of Thomas Michalak, showing Feb. 15-June 15.

All Goreyesque submissions turned in before April 14 will be considered for a public reading and showcase in the gallery space on April 29.

Send work for consideration to goreysubmissions@gmail.com.
