Submit to Tripwire

Tripwire is now accepting submissions for future issues. See guidelines and themes here. Deadline May 1.

What we’re looking for: essays (on contemporary writing, performance, and art), experiments in criticism, poetics statements and investigations, interviews, translations, black and white art work, long-form review essays (that consider several books or authors linked around central themes or questions), performance scores, etc. Please visit the TW website for more specific information.


Tripwire is relaunching in 2011, with new issues, free downloads from back issues, and a new translation microgrant. Tripwire, a journal of poetics, was founded in 1998 by Yedda Morrison and David Buuck. Six issues were published between 1998-2002, with a special supplement published in September, 2004 for the RNC protests in New York. Please check the site for more info, become FB friends, check out the back issues & submission pages, purchase/donate, etc!
