HA&L Review seeks new work about science

web site

Deadline: November 2020

Working Title: Science

Email: halscienceissue@gmail.com


Guest Editor: Sima Rabinowitz

Science is among the most creative of human endeavours. From ancient depictions of scientists and scientific phenomena to contemporary graphic novel formats, from Frankenstein to recent best-selling novels dealing with such themes as pharmacology and climate change, and from memoirs on scientific discovery to essays on “life in the lab,” the people and ideas of science continue to capture our imaginations. Our science themed issue of Hamilton Arts & Letters will include poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, hybrid forms, and artwork on STEM themes (Science, Medicine, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) broadly defined.

We seek work that incorporates ideas, language, characters, main or sub-themes, images, and artwork related to STEM expansively imagined and rendered. Artwork may include a broad range of formats and images across the issue’s themes, including drawing, painting, illustration, appropriate medical imagery (for example, “brain art”), photographs, collage, among other forms.

STEM themes may be drawn from, but will not be limited to, a multitude of diverse disciplines in the natural and physical sciences, medicine, mathematics and statistics, computer science and informatics, cybernetics and artificial intelligence, and any branch of engineering. Submissions may incorporate, but are not limited to, themes and/or language related to theory, experimentation, practical application, STEM-related work, the stories of people engaged in STEM subjects or activity, STEM-related objects, instrumentation, and methods, or experimental/inventive exploration of scientific language, concepts, and images. We welcome work from writers, artists, and “sciartists” in all genres, as well as from members of the scientific community.

Co-produced or collaborative work is welcomed and encouraged. The issue will include diverse styles, approaches, themes, and forms, and, we hope, contributions from across North America and around the world. We will consider work in translation, provided the original and the translation are both provided and available for publication.

A small honorarium is offered for online publication with rights returning to creators upon launch of the magazine in the Fall of 2021.

Submissions close November 15, 2020. Notification of acceptance by February 15, 2021.
