The Plains Song Review journal, published by the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, announced on their blog that they will now accept “graphic literature” — or as we low-brow types call them, comics — submissions:
I really think comics could be a good fit at PSR. They’re such a uniquely American art form, which makes sense for a publication like ours. Furthermore, graphic novels are uniquely well-equipped to explore “place,” as they are able to both depict place both through words and through images.
Of course, PSR’s publishing standards will remain the same as ever. We will only accept submissions that explore the Great Plains, and we will only accept submissions that we feel are high quality. If we don’t get any good comic submissions this year, we simply won’t publish any comics. That said, I’m hoping that we get some really good stuff to show you when Issue XII comes out.
The post credits Van Jensen, journalist and Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer writer, with the idea for adding comics to the journal, which also features fiction, poetry, nonfiction essays and photographs.
