Editors, "Almost Nearly So"

A Journal for Poetics & Poetry / Literature & Culture

ISSN 1938-3592

Immanence / Imminence

Almost Nearly So

Our call for submissions proposed a collection concerning immanence / imminence—that is, the phenomena of emergence & becoming, appearance & disappearance—across a wide range of signification: matters inherent or abiding; objects intentional or manifest; perceptions noetical or pataphysical; actions impending or close-at-hand; communities realized or indeterminate.

Thanks to our guest editors (who have assembled four special features) and also to all of our contributors, we have surpassed that goal.

Reconfigurations 3 is packed with craft & research, difference & innovation, dialogue & figuration, song & vision.

Seventy-five contributors. One hundred and thirty-one individual publications: twenty-one dialogues, seventeen essays, three fictions, twenty image-texts, sixty-four poems, and six reviews. Many (if not most) of those works defy ready categorization, however. All submissions and works accepted for publication were reviewed by the editorial board and/or by other external reviewers.

Reconfigurations is an open-access, annual, independently managed, peer-reviewed journal for poetics and poetry & literature and culture that aims to build bridges among different communities.

Our work here turns upon generative contradictions. We are both outside of established institutional hierarchies of process and production (we are online in the form of a blog) and we are the epitome of such systems (we are peer-reviewed). We seek to gather and present both creative and scholarly texts—a judiciously selected diversity of genres/modes and forms of discourse. We exist as a dynamic space for readers and writers invested in tradition and innovation. Such dedication to both/and, such inclusion of opposition, is required by our project of reconfiguration.

Works are accepted for editorial review, April through August. Reconfigurations launches/publishes during the month of November.
