* SHAKESPEARE ISSUE *

Four centuries after William Shakespeare’s death, his name ennobles a variety of cultural institutions, from libraries and endowed chairs to summer camps and rubber duckies. Even as these structures—both lofty and lowly—rise and fall, we bear witness to the greatest power Shakespeare described: that of poetry itself to preserve without rigidity, to endure without sameness, and to inspire without dominance. Beyond the array of institutions that bear his name, what conversations do Shakespeare’s eternal lines animate now?

New Orleans Review is now accepting work for a special Shakespeare issue that will be published in 2016 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of his death. We welcome submissions that riff on, respond to, reimagine, or recast any of Shakespeare’s works. Submissions may be in any genre, including short fiction, poetry, image/text pieces, creative nonfiction, and scholarship. Prose submissions should be no longer than 7,500 words. Poetry submissions should be no more than 5 poems. 

No previously published work. Simultaneous submissions okay; if your work is taken elsewhere, please use the “withdraw” function in our submissions manager.
