Call Me [Brackets] is a literary journal founded by the students of “Literary Editing and Publishing” (English 307/408). The journal is dedicated to the surprising, the odd, the experimental and everything in-between. We publish twice a year—online in the fall, print in the spring—each issue with a different theme (our first four issues are here). We accept poetry and prose from new and established writers outside the University of Alabama, and visual art from everyone (see here for guidelines).
Edited, designed, and published each semester by undergraduate creative writers, Call Me [Brackets] offers UA students the chance to gain editorial experience by producing, managing, and promoting a literary magazine. Through the course, students investigate the world of small presses, print culture, and web design, with an emphasis on literary citizenship and navigating the many challenges of running and promoting a literary magazine.
