Yellow Medicine Review: A Journal of Indigenous Literature, Art, and Thought
Guest Editor for Spring 2014 Issue:   Carter Meland

Yellow Medicine Review is looking for those kind of sharp, incisive, evocative, and moving poems, stories, creative nonfiction pieces, and essays that let people know that indigenous perspectives on life and letters are alive and well and full of love, grief, hope, and sass. I am particularly interested in pieces that reflect on the ways we are haunted, sometimes with ghosts and other-than-human spirits and sometimes just by the belched up taste of a bad meal. I am also interested in humor, so don’t be afraid to make me laugh. I’m willing. In the end I’m looking for high-quality work that grabs me and makes me read it.
