Call for Manuscripts

Webgeist, an electronic magazine for the erudite websurfer, announces its premier issue, to be published in May, 1996.

Manuscripts will be accepted until April 15th for the inaugural issue, which will focus on the theme of atavism and education.

Atavism is "the reappearance of a characteristic in an organism after several generations of absence, caused by a recessive gene or complementary genes" (American Heritage Dictionary). Metaphorically, atavism is a desire to return to the past, which allegedly was a "golden age" when things worked, people behaved, god was in heaven, and all was right on earth. We would like to see writing that addresses the idea of atavism in American education, politics, family life, daily life, religion, and so on. All viewpoints are encouraged.

Also, we would like to make a general call for stories and poems, book, video, movie, and CD reviews, as well as anything in the other categories listed below. Graphic artists are encouraged to submit small (30-50K) JPG or GIF files of artwork.

Additionally, as you might expect of a magazine named Webgeist, we would like to compile coinages of words that are uniquely cybercentric. If you have made up a word or can provide one, please send it to us with attribution [see example at the end of this message].

Please see the *Guide for Authors* below, which lists the several categories of writings we would like to publish. Either query or send complete manuscripts.

All manuscripts should be emailed to:

Patrick Bjork: bjork@plains.nodak.edu
Richard Cummins: rcummins@ctc.ctc.edu
