Each Fall, The Normal School will publish a Special Theme Issue that combines reprints from the print magazine with new material. The Special Issue will focus on a central theme or idea and combine reprints from print back issues with new original material. For Fall, 2019, the focus will be POP CULTURE and we define this quite broadly. In general, though, we're looking for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that is inspired by or engages with other texts from pop culture--including (but not necessarily limited to) movies, television, music, games, advertising, etc.
Prose submissions should be double spaced in a 12pt readable font, 6000 words max length. Please limit poetry submissions to 5 poems.
