“Borderlands”
Hayden’s Ferry Review, Issue 57


Borderlands are venues for encounter, exchange, and conflict. They encompass not only physical or legislative borders, but also abstract spaces—psychological, cultural, social, and natural.  What happens in the limbic, the transitional, and the in between? What is gained and what is lost in the act of defining boundaries? What questions does the space raise of race, class, gender, citizenship, and identity?  Hayden’s Ferry Review invites writers and artists to interpret the theme as they like.  We’d prefer interpretations of a personal nature, rather than general, but mostly we just want strong, passionate pieces that excite and challenge.

Hayden’s Ferry Review will be accepting themed submissions until June 1st. To submit, please visit our Submittable page.
