Weird Weather

It comes in cycles. Rain then snow then drought. Heat then wind. Vortexes. Freezing temperatures and millions powerless in Texas. Record rainfall and basements flooded in New York. Heat indexes and farmers left without viable crops. This is our new normal. We’ve stopped questioning these events and instead turn to each other and say, weird weather, right?

For this issue of Alluvian, we’re looking for submissions centering around the weird weather brooding in our everyday lives. We want to read and see work that encapsulates the peculiarity of the moments that we’re living in and will continue to endure in our future.

We are particularly interested in work that embodies place, that is unique in form or structure, and that is well done. We want work that catches our eyes and keeps our attention. Send us your best work. Simultaneous submission allowed but please withdraw your submission upon acceptance elsewhere.
