Call for entries: Matter Journal's "Animal" issue

Matter Journal is looking for writing, photography, and artwork that speaks to the animal in all of us. We like well-written stuff best, especially if it comes with something interesting to say and strives for deeper meaning. Prose that howls us into seeing the world a new way. Poems that knock our zebra-striped socks off. Photographs, illustrations, and paintings to drool over.

See our submission guidelines on our web site and then send your best work to Matter, P.O. Box 814, Fort Collins, CO 80522, attn: Matter 14 Animal. It can take 3-6 months for us to respond, so please be patient.
