Call for Submissions: The Survival Issue

Saraba welcomes submissions for its seventeenth issue on the theme of “survival.”

A word from the 1590s, “survival” implies the “act of surviving,” of “continuation after some event.” To “survive” suggests to outlive, and to continue in existence after the death of another. From Latin supervivere, “live beyond, live longer than”; from super “over, beyond” + vivere “to live.”

We expect submissions that respond to the possibilities of living beyond, in spite of, within.

We accept fiction, poetry and nonfiction. ONLY Submit your work using Submittable.
