Nerve Lantern: Axon of Performance Literature

is accepting submissions for Issue 8!

Deadline: September 1, 2014

Nerve Lantern is a journal of experimental performance texts and texts about performance, supporting a range of forms, including poets’ theatre and page-as-stage, published by Pyriform Press and edited by Ellen Redbird.

Polyvocality: encouraged. Verbalized mise en scene: a multidimensional catalyst. Language materiality: let it animate the page, the person. Form: take it places the way travel changes your inner shape.

Look around: swans are waking up. Don’t have all the answers?: no need to shun the quest. Protest: urgent. And: interviews with performance writers, critical texts about performance literature and poetics, reviews of innovative language-centered performances. Etc!
