Silk Road Review Announces New Special Issue, 'Unclaimed'

The editorial staff of Silk Road Review: A Literary Crossroads are pleased to announce the official web launch of issue 19, "Unclaimed." This themed issue features fiction writers, poets, memoirists, translators, playwrights, and other artists investigating cultures, identities, and ways of living that defy categorization or ownership.

Many of these pieces dive into the intricacies that surround family, sexuality, global ties, childbirth, death, immigration, and love. In the Editors' Note, from editors-in-chief Dr. Keya Mitra and Katie Fairchild, the pair state they “are honored to present to you, our readers, this stunning collection of writing which portrays the struggles we all face with culture, religion, family, spaces and identity.”

We invite you to visit the Silk Road website to learn more about Pacific University’s very own literary magazine, read the recently launched online version of issue nineteen, get your own print copy, or purchase an annual print subscription today! Stay up-to-date with our latest issues and events by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

The Silk Road staff reads pieces year round. While the window for submissions to issue 20 has closed, we are now accepting work from any curious fiction or nonfiction writers, poets, translators, artists, playwrights, or photographers for issue 21 through the Silk Road Submittable portal.
