    Historical contexts/how we document our lives and our culture in a digital age/translation between language and artistic mediums. Submissions accepted in Spanish and English. Though you are welcome to submit your work online throughout the year, our reading periods happen in the weeks before and after each posted deadline. We publish two issues a year, and each carries a theme. (Please take a look at past issues, before submitting.) We are generally looking for work that speaks to the theme, but as stated, quality of work is the first
