Opportunity: Submit to Jalada 09 Anthology, themed Nostalgia

Please check your E-mail inbox or spam to confirm.

Jalada is currently open to submissions from writers to contribute to their ninth anthology themed Nostalgia. Jalada accepts fiction, poetry, essays, visual art and interviews. The work should be “an exploration of memory, tradition and modernity, the tactile and the intangible, legacy and erasure, stagnation and evolution, the possible and impossible.”


Read full details below;

“What has the expansion and extinction of languages, plants and wildlife; destruction of the sky and sea, land and peoples pushed us further away from or drawn us closer to? What have we reclaimed and (re)invented? What is the result of the commodification of everything and the homogenization of everyone?

“But, change isn’t all bad. Humanity is better for macro shifts such us the end of slave trade and colonization; the successful push for civil rights and women’s liberation; advances in medicine, science and technology; ideological shifts within the realm of literature and the arts. What was worth leaving behind as recently as yesterday or the past millenniums? What do we remember or know of the old worlds?

Nostalgia is also ​Saudade, ​the love that remains or never happened.

“Saudade​ (English: /ˌsaʊˈdɑːdə/, European Portuguese: [sɐwˈðaðɨ], Brazilian Portuguese: [sawˈdadi] or [sawˈdadʒi], Galician: [sawˈðaðɪ]; plural ​saudades) is a deep emotional state of profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one cares for and/or loves.

“How does one process things than never were? The imagined, not necessarily real or accurate pasts; (re)constructed memory? Have we reconciled with the various trajectories of promise rooted in the past and the peoples and nations we were supposed to be by now?

This is an exploration of memory; tradition and modernity, the tactile and the intangible, legacy and erasure, stagnation and evolution, the possible and impossible.”

Deadline: July 31
