a call and a launch

Hi All,

This post has two functions: the first is to let you know that NōD Magazine is launching its second issue on Friday, February 17th at 7:30 pm at The Lazy Loaf and Kettle (#8 Parkdale Crescent NW Calgary). Our lineup includes Andre' Rodrigues, Felicia Pacentrilli, Jason Christie, S-J Krahn, the music of Some Dirty Hobos and a live performance from Mexico by Danielle Arsenault. Hope to see all or most of you there!

This is also the official call for submissions for Issue 3 of the magazine. This issue, tentatively called Speaking in Tongues, will be our first non-English language issue. We are seeking work in any other language but English, even if those languages are "fictional". Poets and graphic artists, please send a maximum of 8 poems/pages of work; screenplay and prose writers, we will consider work up to 1500 words as a general rule. Having said this, we are flexible, so if you have a special piece that operates outside these strictures, let me know; I'll be glad to take a look at it. Please include an English language translation with any written work: we will not publish anything that has not been translated. Anyone whose work is accepted for publication in NōD will receive a free copy of the issue they are published in. Our commitment to publishing beginning artists alongside veteran practitioners has thus far resulted in an excellent publication.

Finally, because we are a small magazine just starting out, I would be delighted if all of you forwarded a copy of this email to anyone you know who might be interested in submitting work to us or who might just want to know more about what we do. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them and answer them if I can. If you don't want to receive any more emails from me regarding the magazine, let me know and I'll remove you from the email list. We can always be contacted at

I look forward to seeing or hearing from all of you!
