Global Graffiti No. 7, Summer 2012

South/North,East/West: The Cardinal Directions Issue

Just as much as spatial location often defines our lives (think about the importance of our neighborhoods, cities, nations), so too do geographical divisions, especially those dividing north and south, east and west.  For the 7th installment of Global Graffiti, the editors are interested in receiving work that takes up north/south or east/west divisions and the cultural, artistic, political, social ramifications of these geographic divides.

Global Graffiti accepts scholarly, creative, and non-fiction writing and artwork. The magazine has published essays, stories, poetry, journalism, photography, interviews, reviews, and dispatches from noted writers, artists, and scholars from the US and around the world. We look forward to receiving submissions that take up the Cardinal Directions theme from a variety of angles and from a variety of national, regional, and local contexts.
