VIA: Voices In Italian Americana is seeking critical and creative works that reflect on two sides of identity: experience and tradition. Experience explores what it means to be between two cultures, two ways of life, two habits, two languages, two genders, two heritages, two selves. Tradition reflects on particular customs, cultural touchstones, and figures that have come from Italy and/or have grown out of traditionally Italian American neighborhoods.

Submissions are open to all individuals. VIA accepts fiction, essays, poetry, critical studies, creative nonfiction, visual work, and all that delves into these facets of identity.

Note: Manuscripts should be formatted according to The Chicago Manual of Style. Prose submissions are limited to 5000 words; poetry should not exceed five pages.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
