Announcing Conclave: A Journal of Character

Conclave: A Journal of Character is accepting submissions for its debut print issue, Fall 2008. We will accept submission from April 1-July 1, 2008. Prepare your fiction, nonfiction, poetry, dramatic excerpts, or photographs for submission and visit: www.conclavejournal.com

Conclave is an annual print journal that focuses on character-driven writing in contemporary literary fiction. Conclave seeks writing that centers around well-crafted and authentic characters: like Leopold Bloom, Huckleberry Finn, Anna Karenina, Hamlet, Miss Havisham, Hannibal Lecter, Hester Prynne, and others. Whether you love them or hate them, these characters are unforgettable and infuse their stories with life beyond the page. Those are the kinds of characters that we’d like to have populate the pages of Conclave: A Journal of Character.

We look forward to reading your work!
