“Without music life would be a mistake.” ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Global Graffiti is an online journal dedicated to world literature, arts, and culture. Our first four issues have featured creative pieces and interviews with both well-known and up-and-coming local and international authors, along with cutting-edge scholarly work.
We are excited to announce the theme of our fifth issue: MUSIC. We are interested in receiving submissions that explore the cultural impact of music (of all kinds--popular, experimental, classical, contemporary). We seek scholarly work (academic articles, reviews), creative pieces (poetry, stories, essays, creative nonfiction), music journalism (interviews, essays), and artwork, that creatively explore music’s indelible influence on life and culture throughout history. Some motifs to be considered are lyrical poetry, ancient and modern drama, music as political activism, global music trends, musical genres, and the influence of contemporary technologies on musical distribution and influence.
Please send English-language submissions (foreign language works translated into English also gladly accepted) and your bio/c.v. to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2011. We do not have word count limits because of the digital format, but we do request that you send your work as an attached .doc or .rtf file; otherwise, it is also acceptable to cut and paste your work within your e-mail.
