Beside the Point (2022)Call for Submissions: 



Are we in a period of return – or even re-emergence? Some people insist so; others warn against it. What does it mean to return – to “come back or go back to a former position”, especially if we believe time is linear? 


In this time of return(ing), Beside the Point welcomes submissions of work that engages with the theme of a return. You don’t need to mention pandemics, vaccines, or Covid-19, though it’s understood that might be an undercurrent in the work. Mostly, we want to offer a forum for creative expression that is influenced and perhaps informed by our current context.  


We encourage you to submit your short stories, scripts, poems, creative nonfiction, and photographs to Beside the Point. See the fine print at the link below for details. We are looking forward to reading! 


Deadline for submissions: Dec. 15, 2021
