“A look of perplexity appeared on Gabriel’s face. It was true that he wrote a literary column every Wednesday in The Daily Express, for which he was paid fifteen shillings. But that did not make him a West Briton surely. The books he received for review were almost more welcome than the paltry cheque. He loved to feel the covers and turn over the pages of newly printed books.” ~From “The Dead” in Dubliners by James Joyce
Chicago Literati is accepting submissions for our next feature issue until March 1, 2018.
Our guest editor, Courtney Harler, is particularly intersted in the ways in which Celtic culture is represented in contemporary society. Think of Outlander or Poldark, both the books and the television adaptations. Think of festivals you may have attended, or music you may have encountered, or travels you may have taken.
We welcome all your fine musings in all their artistic forms: poetry, fiction, original artwork, essays, reviews, and photography. Impress us with your insights, but don’t forget the deadline! Please submit 200 to 2,000 words, please.
