Western New Mexico University’s student-run Twisted Vine Literary Arts Journal put out a call for submissions and asked artists to send original and unpublished works of poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, interviews and visual arts for possible publication.

Curated by WNMU’s Master of Arts Interdisciplinary Studies program, Twisted Vine publishes work by both emerging and established literary and visual artists.

Students in a graduate-level course called Literary Journal run Twisted Vine. The staff consists of a managing editor, design specialists, communications specialists and screeners for all genres. All of these positions are held by graduate students, and the staff usually changes semester-to-semester. The course gives students real-life experience running a literary journal and provides practice in publishing that they can put on their résumés.

The journal was started by WNMU professor John Gist and is currently run by Dr. Heather M. Steinmann, Assistant Professor of English at WNMU. Since its inception, Twisted Vine has published work by writers and visual artists from all over the world. The five past issues are archived online.

According to the staff-developed call for submissions, Twisted Vine seeks to represent an eclectic mix of ideas and values. “We have a particular interest in pieces that challenge or redefine expression in new and inviting ways,” the Twisted Vine website said. “We will give preference to pieces that capture the spirit of our interdisciplinary theme.”

Twisted Vine adheres to a blind review policy, so contributors should not include any identifying information in submissions. Works from Twisted Vine and Western New Mexico University staff and faculty will not be accepted.

Pieces can be submitted to Twisted Vine at twistedvine.wnmu.edu. Announcements about the literary journal’s final selections will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
