Border Senses: call for submission

November 6, 2008

BorderSenses is actively seeking submissions for Volume 15, a themed issue on double identity. We are seeking works in poetry, fiction and nonfiction, in both Spanish and English languages. Translations are acceptable provided all rights and permissions have been granted, are also considered by our editors. 

The chimera, a mythological fire-breathing animal composed of multiple parts, is said to have had the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent.  In human beings, the chimeric phenomenon manifests as a person with two genetically different types of cells.  For this issue, we propose the chimera as a metaphor for the creature of the border, for which two different forms of blood can exist in one body.
