Reading Season Has Opened

The editors are in, and the new reading season has opened. We will accept electronic submissions through May 1st.

We publish finely crafted fiction, essays, poetry and translations that give
readers a vivid point of exchange, an interaction that could occur only in a specific time and space. This event could be captured in a poem or short story as well as in reportage or travel writing. It could happen in a drawer in New Zealand or on the expanse of the  African plains. Anyone from anywhere can enter into the conversation at Silk Road.  We’d like to read your fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
