Yellow Medicine Review: A Journal of Indigenous Literature, Art, and Thought
Guest Editor for Spring 2015 Issue:   Joan Naviyuk Kane

Yellow Medicine Review invites submissions of compelling and innovative poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. For this issue, hybrid forms and genre innovation are encouraged. Yellow Medicine Review serves as a platform for indigenous writers, scholars, and artists, and encourages an international mix of indigenous voices. YMR features emerging talent along with more established reputations. Themes of displacement and adaptation at the core of the contemporary Native situation will be featured in this issue.  Works that surface the relationship between environmental degradation, natural disasters, climate change, urban possibility and the sustainable future will be given special consideration in this issue. Interact with and interpret these guiding themes freely: the new pastoral, street lit, journey myths, psychological memoir and all other associated riffs are welcome.
