Wreck Park is a double-blind, peer reviewed publication run out of Binghamton, New York. The journal publishes prose, poetry, criticism, and interviews, and is particularly interested in conceptual frameworks and developments that set to disrupt canonical and standardized discourses of the contemporary academic and literary landscapes. The journal welcomes authors, poets, researchers, and thinkers whose work reflects an interrogation of engendered norms and traditions within societies, cultures, intellectual circles, and beyond.
Wreck Park’s criticism section locates itself within transnational American and postcolonial studies. Our aim is to provide a discursive space for interested – implicated, errant, politically invested – investigations that aim to occupy, disrupt, and re-constellate contemporary literary, cultural, and theoretical discourses.
Wreck Park is inviting works of prose—short fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, creative essay, etc. In keeping with an unrestricted sensibility, there is no minimum or maximum word count, though works over 15,000 words, if accepted, will be considered for serialization. The journal only accepts electronic submissions. To ensure a blind submission process,we ask that works be stripped of any and all references to author names, addresses, or institutions.
Poetry is now open for submissions! Please send us 4-6 of your best poems, but no more than 10 pages. Please include contact material in the body of your email, but not within the submission. All submissions will be read blindly by the editor, and there’s no need to attach a bio. Please see previous issues to answer questions about content and style. Response time will vary from 8-12 weeks, so please feel free to query any time after that.
