Draper Alumna Lit Journal--Trans Lit Mag--Call for Submissions!

Draper alumna Christina Phelps (2oo8) contacted us with the following announcement about the online literary journal that she started this fall, Trans Lit Mag. For more information about the journal and information on how to submit see below.
This past fall I started an online literary magazine called trans lit mag. The idea is that it is continuously expanding, quarterly, and name changing. Issue #1, as our first transmission, was called "transmission." Issue # 2 is called "transience" and is ongoing until March 21, when we move on to Issue # 3: "transform." The title isn't so much a theme as a loosely defined guiding principle. You can read all about our call for submissions and our submission guidelines on our blog, where there is also a link to the first issue.

The trans lit mag team has been up to a lot of really exciting things lately. We had our first reading, featuring six talented readers at Txikito (a Basque restaurant in the heart of Chelsea), and we are preparing for Issue #3, transform.

trans lit mag is looking for fiction, poetry, artwork (including a cover), and literary nonfiction. Check out our Submission Guidelines and then send your beautiful work to

Special attention will be given to pieces that play with form in some way, but this should be very loosely translated. Transform comes from the Latin word meaning to change in form, and characters often do undergo a change in appearance or character, but we can also be changed by what we experience – as readers, as artists.

Issue #3 will begin March 21 and run through June 20. There are no deadlines.

And forward this to anyone who might be interested. I hope you enjoy reading the magazine as much as I have. Cheers,
