Ozone Park

Typically, I don't point you to calls for submissions from journals that don't pay their writers, but today I am making an exception, and that's for two reasons. First, Ozone Park is the journal of the Queens College (CUNY) MFA program, and I am a big fan of all the CUNY writing programs. Second, Ozone Park's new editor, Deonne Kahler, is a good friend.

Learn more about Ozone Park, which is taking submissions in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, translation, and play excerpts until June 15, here. NB: Deonne tells me that the next issue will publish in May, and it will include an interview with Li-Young Lee.

How did you come up with the name Ozone Park for your journal? Did you live in Ozone Park?

RMotti: One of the Queens College MFA professors named the journal (after considering about a hundred different ideas), and it's a nod to Jack Kerouac's old neighborhood in Queens. Thanks for asking!
