A juried on-line journal, Elder Mountain seeks Ozarks-focused manuscripts from all disciplinary perspectives as well as interdisciplinary approaches. In addition, high-quality, Ozarks-oriented short stories, poems, and works of creative nonfiction are of keen interest.
Only electronic submissions are accepted and may be sent as a Word attachment to PhillipHowerton@MissouriState.edu.
Well-crafted, thesis-driven articles free of discipline-specific jargon have the greatest likelihood of acceptance. Please use the documentation style appropriate to the discipline.
Carefully wrought short stories and essays free of common Ozark stereotypes will receive appreciative consideration. Creative prose pieces should be a maximum of 5000 words.
Poems may range in style from formal to free verse. Strong imagery and intelligently rendered content are attractive qualities.
Simultaneously submitted or previously published work will not be considered.
