I'm not involved with this project, or it's parent organization in anyway. I simply became aware of the extension to the deadline, and thought that I'd share.

Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Photography from or about the Bronx

For the summer issue, the online literary journal Cross Bronx ( is seeking short stories, creative non-fiction, poetry, and photography on the theme of HOME.

What does home mean to you? What is it like to have a love/hate relationship with your home? What if home is a friend's couch, or a shelter, or a park? Is is a color, a sound, a sudden sharp sense memory? Home is a complicated concept, and for this issue we want new and challenging views of what “home” means. We want to meet fictional characters who wrestle with the diverse emotional, physical, and spiritual landscape of “home.” We want poetry that illuminates different aspects of “home” - safety, warmth, family, confinement, repression, fear, love, food, sex, etc. We want photographs that show us something we've never seen before.

Submissions are welcome from Bronx-based writers, as well as from writers of work that place in the Bronx.

The deadline for summer submissions has been extended to July 15, 2009 (right around the corner.) The summer edition is scheduled for publication in late July (online only.)
